Experts openly criticize the economic policies of the government and make unpredictable forecasts.
"The main reason for the impairment of GEL is uneven expenditures from the budget. As well as the uncontrolled launch of a refinancing of loans from the National Bank. But lately, when we have already moved to the second round of elections, it needs the artificial respiratory apparatus, "said Nika Shengelia, Vice-President of the International Research and Forecasting Center.
