The first MediaTOR training module on “Reporting on Economy” is approaching its end. This particular module was led by Maka Antidze – a Georgian reporter with extensive international journalistic experience.
On November 10, 2021, ISET Policy Institute introduced ReforMeter, the platform designed as a Georgian Reform Progress Tracking System, one which critically informs beneficiaries and stakeholders about how the latest economic reforms are developing.
ISET’s ReforMeter is back on track to keep an eye on both planned and ongoing economic reforms in Georgia. With that in mind, ISET Policy Institute held an online live event to review the goals and objectives of the project.
The project aims to increase the role and participatory power of media in the economic reform implementation process in Georgia by equipping Georgian media representatives with the necessary skills and creating an easily accessible online repository on economic reforms.
2017 is shaping up as one of the best years in Georgia’s post-2008 crisis history. The economy is expected to expand by about 5%, beating early expectations and official forecasts by the likes of the IMF and the World Bank. Based on updated GeoStat figures for Q1 and Q2, ISET-PI’s annual growth forecast currently stands at 4.9%.
