Ukraine has moved up four places and took 110th place in the Human Freedom Index 2020 with an index of 6.45. This was reported on the website of the American non-political research organization Cato Institute.
The organization applies a 0 to 10 scale, where 10 shows the most significant level of freedom. The index itself presents a broad
measure of human freedom, understood as the absence of coercive constraint. It uses 76 distinct indicators of personal and
economic freedom in different areas.
New Zealand (8.87), Switzerland (8.82), Hong Kong (8.74), Denmark (8.73), and Australia (8.68) are the top five countries with the highest results.
As we reported earlier, the recent economic study of the European Business Association (EBA) showed that Ukraine's Investment Attractiveness Index dropped to 2.4 points out of five possible in the second half of 2020.
The results of the index show an unprecedented decline in the mood of managers of foreign and Ukrainian companies that are members of the organization.
It is worth mentioning that such a low index has been recorded for the first time since 2013.
