ČR - average country for investors by global dynamism index

9 January 2013

Prague, Jan 8 (CTK) - The Czech Republic is an average country for investors by Global Dynamism Index (GDI) 2012 compiled by the consulting company Grant Thornton and the global weekly magazine Economist.

Out of the 50 monitored countries, the Czech Republic ranks 29th. The strongest area is business operating environment (22nd place) and the country ranks 4th in Eastern Europe, behind the Slovak Republic, Slovenia and Poland.

Singapore emerges as the most dynamic economy in the world, while Venezuela, Nigeria and Greece sit at the bottom of the index, Grant Thornton said in a press release.

Five areas were identified as holding the key drivers to an economy’s dynamism, namely business operating environment, science and technology, labour and human capital, economics and growth and the financing environment, the company said.

In the Czech Republic, investors appreciate foreign trade regime, political stability, low corporate tax burden and reasonable rate of unemployment.

They see as problems an insufficient growth in IT investment, insufficient growth in broadband subscriber lines, ageing population and low volume and growth in foreign investment.

In terms of financing environment, the Czech Republic occupies the 26th place, in science and technology it comes 31st, in economics and growth it ranks 34th and in labour and human capital 35th.
