North Macedonia scored best among the countries of Southeast Europe (SEE) in the latest Doing Business report of the World Bank Group released on Wednesday.

North Macedonia lost seven spots to 17th position in the ranking, while Croatia, Serbia and Slovenia are the only SEE countries that improved their rankings compared with last year’s edition, according to data from the Doing Business 2020 report.
