Volodymyr Dubrovsky, CASE Ukraine Center for Socioeconomic Research senior economist, comments to ‘Radio Svoboda’ media outlet: rating may not fully reflect the state of affairs. The expert remains skeptical of possible investments, as many investors now observe not the ratings, but the reputation of the country in the world.
‘Certain shifts are indeed taking place, but I would not evaluate them through the Doing Business rating, because it is actually very fragmentary, variegated and very unrepresentative. For investors, the main problem is the reputation of a country that remains very poor. We cannot protect our property rights, we do not have a fair court’, – the expert says.
