The economic freedom index of Iran has improved by 19 ranks, but the country is still far from claiming it has a free economy attractive for foreign investments, the latest ranking of the Fraser Institute shows.

The 2018 report of the Canadian think-tank and research firm, which employs data from 2016, shows that Iran ranked 130th in the world in terms of economic freedom with a total score of 6.03 out of 10. In the 2017 report, which dealt with conditions in 2015, Iran ranked a dismal 149th among 159 countries with a score of 5.40.
