Weekly Press Review | Estonia improves its prosperity score anew

Estonia improves its prosperity score anew

UK-based think-tank and charity organization Legatum Institute praised Estonia’s quick ascent on Prosperity Index since the country regained its independence from Soviet rule.

The Baltic country improved its ranking from 29th to 26th in terms of prosperity score which consists of wealth, economic growth, personal well-being, quality of life, education, and health.

The list cited Estonia’s dramatic GDP per capita growth of $2,000 in 1991 to its current mark at $18,000 per capita. According to Ligatum Institute, this is due to the government’s efforts in “establishing strong and effective governance, coupled with a clear vision for how to improve its business environment.”
