AmCham brings an overview of data published by the Czech Ministry of Health, Institute of Health Information and Statistics of the Czech Republic (UZIS) and The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control to show the Covid-19 development in the Czech Republic, Europe and the world.
The strength and swiftness of our recovery from the Covid19 crisis will be determined by how much and how soon business will begin to invest in jobs and production. Government stimulus will help, but the efficiency of government administration is just as important. The construction approval process in the Czech Republic is 156th out of 190 countries in World Bank rankings. Moving to the top third in the rankings would be a major contribution not only to accelerating the recovery, but making it possible for the Czech Republic to become TheCountryfortheFuture.
