Europe's Poorest Country

At about 15,600 euros last year, GDP per capita is less than half of Ireland’s and about 9.3 percent below that of Greece, making it western Europe’s poorest country, according to EU data. The government forecasts the economy will shrink another 2.3 percent this year, twice its earlier prediction.
