Since its introduction at SPIEF 2014, the Index has proven to be an effective tool for assessing the efforts of public authorities at all levels, in particular, their success in improving the business environment in the regions, and has become an effective instrument for identifying and propagating the best governance practices in the country. Which regions are achieving the biggest advances in rankings? How does the business community participate in the work of regional project teams? What initial results are being seen from the educational programmes aimed at implementing best governance practices?
