To qualify as a country worthy of investment, certain standards must be met.

A World Bank Group report highlighted four factors — the country’s people, environment, relationships, and framework — that propel both individuals and corporations to invest in a given country’s natural resources, markets, technologies, or brands.

Guided by the report from the World Bank Group, U.S. News identified the best countries to invest in for 2018.

Last month, U.S. News released their 2018 Best Countries ranking. To determine the overall list, U.S. News surveyed over 21,000 people worldwide about 80 different countries, measuring them on 65 different attributes, including cultural influence, entrepreneurship, and quality of life.

For the best countries to invest in ranking, U.S. News focused on just eight of the 65 attributes: entrepreneurship, economic stability, favorable tax environment, innovation, skilled labor, technological expertise, dynamism, and corruption. Responses from over 6,000 survey participants — who act as decision makers in business around the globe — were then used to determine the ranking.

See below for the rankings, which includes the country’s population, GDP, and the GDP growth percentage in 2016.
