The Czech Republic placed 15th out of 29 countries (the 27 EU member states, plus Switzerland and Norway), compared to 2006, when it ranked 22nd out of 26 countries. The Czech Republic received 612 points, finishing closely behind Estonia, Cyprus and Spain and ahead of Ireland, Britain and Italy. Austria with 806 points out of 1,000 placed first, while Latvia (435 points) was at the bottomof the list of assessed countries.
