Ukraine in  International Rankings

Since 2014, simplifying bureaucratic procedures, easing tax pressure and successful political reforms have boosted Ukraine`s position in international rankings. This growth has been recognized by the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund and other reputable international financial institutions. To independently compare Ukraine`s economic attractiveness with other countries, we have compiled the list of international rankings that measure the ease of doing business, human capital, and macroeconomic stability.

Doing Business

Ukraine has risen seven places in the 2020 edition of the World Bank’s annual Doing Business survey and now occupies 64th position in the influential survey as the progress of recent years continues.

Ukraine advanced in six of the ten categories featured in the ranking including improvements in getting electricity, registering property, and trading across borders. This is the latest improvement in Ukraine’s position following steady gains following the 2013-2014 Euromaidan Revolution.

Ukraine has now climbed 48 places since the October 2013 edition of the annual survey, when it ranked 112th globally.
