Bulgaria Up to 60th in Economic Freedom

Bulgaria has moved up to the 60th position in the 2011 Economic Freedom Index compiled by the Heritage Foundation and the Wall Street Journal.

Bulgaria's overall economic freedom score is 64.9, ranking it 60th freest in the 2011 Index. It indicates a 2.6 points increase, reflecting gains in seven of the 10 economic freedom categories. Bulgaria is ranked 26th out of 43 countries in the Europe region, and its overall score is above the world average but below the regional average.

According to the report, Bulgaria has implemented substantial economic reforms over the past decade. While maintaining macroeconomic stability, it has made considerable progress in income growth and poverty reduction, and has weathered the impact of the global economic downturn relatively well, with the economy supported by generally prudent fiscal policy and sound public debt management.
