The European Chamber ranks European countries based on their business environment. The EuCham score is reflected on a scale from 0 to 100, where 0 represents the lowest performance and 100 represents the best. The EuCham score measures the overall business context constituted by corporate environment, legislation, government policies, social climate and conditions which enable or prevent the private sector activities from starting, operating and expanding, both in the short and in the long term. In 2018, Norway places 2nd (only after Denmark) with a score of 84, followed by Finland and Sweden. The Netherlands places 8th with a score of 79.
The research is based on two globally acclaimed rankings; the Doing Business report by the World Bank, and the Corruption Perception Index (CPI) by Transparency International. The full report is available here!
