Poland jumped 31 places in the ranking of infrastructure quality, while the assessment of running a business in Poland, as well as its global competitiveness, has deteriorated, according to the Competitiveness Report 2021.
The Eight Competitiveness Report, prepared by the global advisory organization Eight International, includes, among others, global rankings on the size of the economy, the ease of doing business, and the quality of education.
According to the authors of the report, the current business environment in Poland has slightly deteriorated compared to the previous ranking from 2015/2016. The ease of doing business also fell, as did the position in the global ranking of economic freedom and competitiveness. "Although the decline is small, it should encourage efforts to reverse the situation," the authors emphasized.
At the same time, they praise Poland for its advancement in the ranking of infrastructure quality: from 56th place to 138 countries to 25th out of 141 countries. According to the authors, Poland can also be appreciated for its achievements in the field of education, both secondary and higher.
Poland's position in the global consumer confidence ranking has also increased.
The Competitiveness Report 2021 also indicates that measures are needed to reduce wealth inequalities and inequalities between wages, as our country has fallen in both rankings.
