BiH is among the worst-rated countries in Central and Eastern Europe when it comes to its attractiveness to investers, with a score of 2.4, according to the research agency of the German Chamber of Commerce and Industry (AHK).

BiH is in last place when compared to countries of former Yugoslavia, and is only slightly better than Ukraine, Belarus and Kosovo.

However, if it’s any consolation, this year BiH received its best ranking since 2007. Namely, from 2007 to because 2013 it occupied the 17th position.

Furthermore, directors and managers who head international companies in BiH were asked the following question: “Would you re-elect your country as a preferred location for investment?”.

72 percent of them responded negatively, while only 28 percent of respondents answered positively.

This study has shown that in the last nine years Poland has advanced the most, rising from the middle of the charts to the first place, putting aside the long-time leader the Czech Republic. Investors are gaining a better perception of Lithuania and Latvia, unlike Slovenia, which has dropped several places.
