The impact of COVID-19 on Trade and structural transformation in Georgia: Evidence from UNECE’s survey of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises

30 September 2020

This online meeting was dedicated to presenting the finds emerging from the United Nations Economic Commission (UNECE) review of the impact of the crisis on the Georgian economy. The review was based on a survey of 330 micro, small and medium enterprises MSMEs from across the country, including 226 manufacturing and trading enterprises and 104 farmers, and major forwarders operating in the country. The review traced how non-tariff measures (NTMs) governing trade in goods influenced end-to-end supply chains and captured the lingering effects of the pandemic and their implications for achieving the 2030 sustainable development goals (SDGs).
