How liberal is Hungary's economy?

Hungary ranks the 35th position with 2.4 points in the 2005 list of “Index of Economic Freedom" which covers 155 countries.

Hungary was the seventh best improving country in one year with a 0.2 point advance, and can be considered “mostly free" on a scale from “free" to “repressed".

Now the 25 governments have to get that document ratified in their national parliaments. At least 10 are proposing to hold national referendums on what is a long (nearly 300 pages) and complicated document.
