Bulgaria Climbs Up in Economic Freedom Index

28 January 2015 21:03:14 Novinite.com (Sofia News Agency)

Bulgaria has climbed up 6 places in the 2015 Index of Economic Freedom compared to the previous year, currently ranking between Hungary and Oman. According to the index prepared on a yearly basis by the Heritage Foundation in partnership with the Wall Street Journal, the country's overall score is 1.1 points better than in 2014 "due to improvements in investment freedom, freedom from corruption, and monetary freedom that outweigh declines in business freedom and labor freedom." On a European level, Bulgaria is currently 26th out of 43 countries in the region, with its overall score "above the world average but below the regional average." Economic freedom in Bulgaria has advanced "by nearly 2.0" points over the past few years due to "a more open investment environment, improvements in the fiscal outlook, diminished perceptions of corruption, and now inflation." The ranking says out of ten factors investment and monetary freedom recorded gains alongside four other factors, advancing 10 and 7.7 points respectively. The index praises Bulgaria's steps "to control budget deficits and public debt more efficiently", though it says more effort is necessary "to achieve broad-based economic freedom and growth." It further elaborates on Bulgaria's performance in various areas. In "Rule of law", it cites as problems "corrupt and inconsistend public administration, a weak judiciary, and organized crime" in the first place. As for "Regulatory efficiency" it comments the country for an overall regulatory framework that "supports entrepreneurial activity," but notes it takes more than three months to obtain a license and also that labor market needs futher reforms. The "Open markets" summary reads that "Bulgaria's regulatory and court systems can be a hurdle for foreign investors."

Ferid Wali is eagerly anticipating returning to a Kobani free of Isis, four months after he and his family were forced to flee its advance. He, his wife and three children now live in a small apartment in Suruc, a small town 15 miles north over the border in Turkey. “It’s hard to pay the rent. The children can’t go to school here. We want to go home,” he told The Independent. Isis fighters have been driven out of 90 per cent of Kobani, the US said this week.

Time for compromise among Yemenis

28 January 2015 20:47:01 RSS Feed From Your Middle East - Section Opinion

THE MOST RECENT crisis was triggered by a dispute between the Huthis, a predominantly Zaydi/Shiite movement also known as Ansar Allah, and President Hadi over a draft constitution that has controversial language concerning the divisive, unsettled issue of the country’s future federal arrangement. It started when the Huthis kidnapped presidential adviser Ahmed Bin Mubarak earlier this month, which sent a message to Hadi that they would not accept a constitution based on six-region federalism, a division that Mubarak supported and that the Huthis suspected him of trying to push through without their consent. But the political challenge quickly morphed into a military confrontation between Huthi fighters, who had largely controlled the capital since September 2014, and Hadi’s special guards. The Huthis easily won, completing their military dominance and placing the president under virtual house arrest."There is little external actors can do, with the possible exceptions of Saudi Arabia and Iran"
