In Kiev, live, as in Hungary, as in Zhitomir - as in Honduras
So experts evaluated the competitiveness of Ukrainian regions.

Last year, Ukraine in the economy's competitiveness ranking dropped to 10 positions and is now at 82-th place among African countries, Gambia and Algeria. Such an outcome study, which had Ukrainian Foundation for Effective Governance and the World Economic Forum. Experts assessed the Ukrainian economy to 12 criteria, including macroeconomic stability, the level of financial market development and business in general, featuring new technologies and many others. All those boring at first glance, the criteria allow to assess overall quality of life in the country.

- Over the past few years, Ukraine has failed to improve their competitiveness, - said the economist at the World Economic Forum Thierry Geiger. - Severe economic crisis along with the protracted political instability did not allow for much needed reform of the country.

However, in some Ukrainian cities life is not worse than in Europe. As the report says, the same Kiev can compete with Hungary and Transcarpathia - with Romania. And in the Dnipropetrovsk region life is not worse than in Russia. But the majority of Ukrainian regions, unfortunately, is still at the level of Latin America and Africa.
