This year's results, based on data for 2017, were again presented in Athens by the liberal think tank KEFIM.
According to figures, Greece fell one position even though in 2017 the Greek economy recorded positive growth after two years of recession.

For yet another year, of all the surveyed countries, Venezuela ranks last.
