Kazakhstan beats of a number of European countries in government efficiency, according to the list.

According to the authors of the rating, efficient work of the government is important for the country's competitiveness and its economic growth. 

"The role of institutions goes beyond the legal framework. Government attitudes toward markets and freedoms and the efficiency of its operations are also very important: excessive bureaucracy and red tape, overregulation, corruption, dishonesty in dealing with public contracts, lack of transparency and trustworthiness, inability to provide appropriate services for the business sector, and political dependence of the judicial system impose significant economic costs to businesses and slow the process of economic development," the ranking methodology said.
