This paper presents the latest results for indices measuring the business environment quality in countries V4 (the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia) and Serbia. We use for mutual comparison four indices - Corruption Perception Index (CPI), Aggregate Governance Indicators (AGI), Capture Index, Opacity index. All indicators are based on subjective data obtained through surveys. According to these results, the quality of business environment in Hungary is perceived as the best, followed by Czech Republic and Poland with almost the same results. We have found little lagging in Slovakia, but the larger lagging in Serbia.
