Afghanistan's economic freedom score is 51.5, making its economy the 152nd freest in the
2019 Index. Its overall score has increased by 0.2 point, with advances in labor freedom,
property rights protection, and judicial effectiveness outpacing declines in business
freedom and monetary freedom. Afghanistan is ranked 39th among 43 countries in the
Asia–Pacific region, and its overall score is below the regional and world averages.
The improved availability of key economic data made it possible to grade Afghanistan's economic freedom for the first time in the 2017 Index. Its score in the 2019 Index reflects steady, incremental improvement in several economic freedom indicators. Over the past decade, economic growth has been volatile but rapid, with construction and agriculture the key contributors to economic expansion. Political uncertainty, corruption, and security challenges remain formidable, and the rule of law remains fragile and uneven across the country.
Former World Bank technocrat Ashraf Ghani became president of this mountainous and landlocked country in 2014
following an election marred by allegations of vote rigging.
After much political wrangling, President Ghani and former Foreign Minister Abdullah Abdullah formed a unity government with Abdullah as the newly created chief executive officer.
Timing of the scheduled 2019 presidential election will likely depend on progress in talks with the Taliban.
Afghanistan is heavily dependent on international military and economic assistance, which constituted an estimated 4 percent of GDP in 2016, and its living standards are among the lowest in the world.
Licit exports include table grapes and raisins, but the economy remains heavily dependent on illicit opium cultivation.
An ongoing insurgency and drought have hampered economic growth.
Afghanistan is ranked 167 among 190 economies in the ease of doing business, according to the latest World Bank annual ratings. The rank of Afghanistan improved to 167 in 2018 from 183 in 2017. Ease of Doing Business in Afghanistan averaged 171.27 from 2008 until 2018, reaching an all-time high of 183 in 2016 and a record low of 154 in 2010.
