Poorest Countries in Europe

Table

Introduction

According to the 2021 GNI per capita data from the World Bank, the poorest countries in Europe are Moldova, Ukraine, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovia, and the Republic of Macedonia. Ukraine is the poorest country in Europe, with a GNI per capita of $3,500, while Moldova is the second poorest country with $4,600, Albania the third, with $5.200, the Republic of Macedonia comes fourth, with a GNI of $5,700, and Bosnia and Herzegovina the fifth poorest, with $6,100. These countries are all located in Eastern Europe, where economic instability and political unrest have been ongoing issues.

One of the trends that can be observed in these countries is a high level of income inequality. Despite some economic growth in recent years, poverty rates remain high, particularly in rural areas, where access to basic infrastructure and services is limited. Political instability and corruption have also contributed to the persistent poverty in these countries.

Another trend that these countries share is a significant brain drain, where educated individuals leave for better economic opportunities in other countries. This exacerbates the already struggling economies of these countries and contributes to a lack of skilled labor, hindering economic growth. Finally, another trend that is related to brain drain, is that these countries face a heavy dependence on remittances from citizens working abroad.
