The second phase of the G-20 Data Gaps Initiative and guidance on financial soundness indicators identify the residential property price index (RPPI) as a critical ingredient of financial stability policy analysis and macroprudential measures. At the request of the National Statistics Office of Georgia (Geostat), a technical assistance mission was conducted by the IMF’s Statistics Department (STA) to support the launch of a new quarterly RPPI for Georgia. This work was part of a three-year project to improve national accounts and price statistics in Eastern and Southeastern Europe, funded by the Government of The Netherlands. The mission finalized the preparatory work to disseminate the quarterly RPPI beginning in April 2021.

Ireland is a small open economy that is part of a monetary union and has a major financial system. Within the Euro Area (EA), Ireland comprises a relatively small proportion of aggregate GDP (3.4 percent), of which a significant portion is attributable to foreign-owned multinational enterprises (MNEs). Yet, the Irish financial system holds assets of EUR 7.9 trillion, over 18 times GDP. Since monetary policy is carried out by the European Central Bank (ECB) for the entire EA, macroprudential policy has the potential to play a critical stabilizing role for the Irish financial system.

Iceland's economy has weathered multiple shocks since 2019 relatively well. The economic outlook is positive but suggests long-term scarring. The risks are tilted to the downside and are associated with the global impact of a potential escalation in the war in Ukraine, the pandemic, economic disruptions, and tighter global financial conditions. On the upside, tourism and new innovative industries could help the economy recover faster.
