Azer News - - Nation - By Rashid Shiri­nov

Azer­bai­jan took the 45th place in the rank­ing of most in­flu­en­tial coun­tries, thus im­prov­ing its po­si­tion by two, ac­cord­ing to the rank­ing com­piled by the U.S. News & World Re­port.

Azer­bai­jan is ahead of coun­tries such as Poland, Greece, Colom­bia, Czech Re­pub­lic, Ro­ma­nia, Hun­gary, etc. It is note­wor­thy that Azer­bai­jan is the only coun­try in the South Cau­ca­sus that was in­cluded in the rank­ing.

As for the lead­ers of the rank­ing, it is headed by the U.S, fol­lowed by Rus­sia and China. Ger­many, the United King­dom, France, Ja­pan, Is­rael, Saudi Ara­bia and the UAE are also in­cluded in the Top-10 in­flu­en­tial coun­tries of the world.

In another rank­ing, list­ing the best coun­tries of the world, Azer­bai­jan is put in the 64th place, thus im­prov­ing its po­si­tion by five. Here Azer­bai­jan pre­cedes such coun­tries as Ukraine, Kaza­khstan, Be­larus, Iran, Ser­bia, etc.

The first three places in this rank­ing were taken by Switzer­land, Canada and Ger­many. The United King­dom, Ja­pan, Swe­den, Aus­tralia, the U.S., France and the Nether­lands also take their places among the Top-10 best coun­tries of the world.

The an­a­lysts as­sessed each coun­try on nine cri­te­ria, in­clud­ing the level of de­vel­op­ment of the tourism in­dus­try, open­ness to busi­ness, liv­ing stan­dards, im­pact on the world stage, cul­ture, his­tor­i­cal her­itage, etc.

Thus, Azer­bai­jan is im­prov­ing its po­si­tion year by year thanks to the proper man­age­ment of the coun­try. Since the 1990s, the coun­try has sig­nif­i­cantly im­proved all of its spheres, such as econ­omy, tourism, ed­u­ca­tion and health­care, etc, and this process is con­stantly con­tin­u­ing in Azer­bai­jan.
