Poland rated 5th in CEE region on investment risk


Poland ranks fifth in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) and 30th in the world in terms of the level of investment risk, according to the latest Euromoney Country Risk (ECR), a quarterly survey by Euromoney. The report evaluates the investment risk of 187 countries by looking at their political stability, economic performance, structural assessment, debt indicators, credit ratings and access to finance/capital markets.

Poland received an ECR score of 71.15 points (on a 100-point scale; the average for all countries was 44.56 points) in June, which moved it up one notch in the global table compared with three months earlier. The top-ranking country in the broad CEE region was Cyprus (20th in the global ranking, unchanged from March), with a score of 75.56 points, followed by Slovenia (21st, up five, 74.92 points), Czech Republic (23rd, up one, 74.52 points), and Slovakia (27th, up one, 73.82 points). Other CEE countries received (much) lower scores: thus, Hungary got 58.75 points, Estonia 57.5, Lithuania 57.18, Russia 56.55, Turkey 56.29, Croatia 55.6, Bulgaria 53.77, Latvia 52.3, and Romania 49.59.
