BERLIN. Greece is at the top of the ranking in the comparative study on crisis management and resilience among 29 OECD and European Union countries conducted by the Bertelsmann Foundation.

The study assessed, among other things, the resilience of democracy, the organization of crisis management and the resilience of the welfare state during the pandemic.
