The Preliminary Assessment Report provides an initial analysis of the responses across the EBRD regions and does not cover other participating economies that were included for benchmarking purposes. It provides an overview of the overall results per economy as well as the results for each of the five sections of the Assessment Questionnaire. The Report is based on the unverified data received from 1 September to 7 November 2020 when the Questionnaire was open to responses.


The Assessment Team is has completed a validation process for responses to the Assessment Questionnaire to questions with a factual or legislative basis where there were significant diverging responses from an economy’s stakeholders. Confirmed Assessment results and scoring will be presented in the Final Assessment Report, which will be published in September. The Final Assessment Report will contain more detailed cross-jurisdictional analysis and examples of best practice and will include individual profiles for each of the 38 economies in the EBRD regions.
