Presentation of the Sustainable Business Environment: Regional 2023 Report

The Report assesses the business environment in WB6 economies and Croatia using 5 main pillars: Fundamentals (macroeconomic stability and rule of law); Markets (labor, financial, and capital markets); Administration and regulations (public administration quality and efficiency); Companies (grey economy, innovation, business digitization); Economic development (equality, gender balance, green economy). Around two-thirds of the data comes from statistics, and one-third from field research, offering a comprehensive stock-take of the business environment quality from basics to innovation and green practices. The Report highlights progress in central-level reforms, crucial for local economic development policies. The findings will be presented followed by a panel discussion and insights from key speakers on top performers, successful reforms, and identified gaps in the region.
