South-East Europe Investment Reform Index

 

 

‎‎First published in 2006, the Investment Reform Index (IRI) provides a qualitative assessment of policies and institutions that critically affect the environment for direct investment. Covering ten economies - Albania, Bulgaria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Kosovo, the Republic of Moldova, Montenegro, Romania and Serbia – the study examines:

  • investment policy and promotion
  • human capital development
  • trade policy and facilitation
  • access to finance
  • regulatory reform and parliamentary processes
  • tax policy analysis
  • infrastructure for investment and SME policy

Based on inputs from governments, independent experts and the private sector in every economy, and using over 100 indicators, the‌IRI assesses investment-related policy settings and reform against international best practice.
