Georgian Parliament Speaker Shalva Papuashvili on Friday said the country was “one of the top” economic performers among the European Union membership aspiring countries.

In his social media post, Papuashvili posted the World Bank’s chart showing the gross domestic product per capita of the countries at the time of their accession to the EU and noted achieving “a certain economic level” was a prerequisite for the bloc’s membership.
