The economic crisis caused by the Kovid-19 pandemic proved to be the most severe test for the economies as world, so for individual countries. The crisis is still going on, but in its depth and severity it is already surpassing the global financial crisis of 2007-2009 and equating to the “Great Depression” of the 1930s. The coronomical crisis has significantly hampered the process of globalization, but there is currently no real threat for deglobalization. The negative impact of the coronomical crisis on the Georgian economy was extremely large. In 2020, the country’s gross domestic product (GDP) decreased by 6.1% compared to the previous year, in January 2021, the decline in GDP was 11%. The field of tourism, which has been the main source of foreign currency in Georgia in recent years, has found itself in a particularly difficult situation. he anti-crisis activity of Georgia Government can be divided into three stages. In the first phase, the government implemented sharp limitations on economic activity across the country, what became a successful response to the pandemic. In the second stage, the opposite happened - the mitigation of restrictive measures led to the emergence of a new wave of pandemics, which quickly spread from the Black Sea resort area throughout Georgia. Its epicenter was in Tbilisi. The government was forced to carry out again to severe restrictions. We are currently dealing with the third stage, when the process of gradual opening of the economy is taking place against the background of pandemic intensity’s reduction. The final solution to the problem will depend on the optimal combination of mass vaccination implementation and the gradual removing the restrictions of economic.
