Most favourable business conditions in V4 are in Slovakia

The most favourable conditions for doing business in the Visegrad Four countries (V4) can be found in Slovakia, an Ernst & Young poll recently reported.

Ernst & Young solicited the opinions of businessmen and entrepreneurs concerning the business environment in their country.

The value of ‘enterprising index’ in Slovakia was 49.5 points out of 100 for the last year. Although it was the best score in V4, it is still relatively low.

Most businessmen in Slovakia agreed that business and innovations are the most important contributors to economic growth here. On the other hand, the biggest obstacles include the social and political environment, legislative and administrative measures, and the accessibility of human resources.
