Tbilisi, Georgia, Feb. 26 By Nana Kirtzkhalia - Trend: Georgia's economic prospects were discussed in Washington by the World Bank President, Jim Yong Kim and Georgian Prime Minister, Irakli Garibashvili.

Garibashvili referring to the WB outlook, which predicts Georgia's economic growth of 6-7 percent in 2014, said the economic forecasts for the coming years are also optimistic.
