If GDP per capita is an appropriate measure, then the poorest country in Europe (continent) would be the Republic of Moldova, with a GDP per capita (nominal) of $1,809 USD in 2008 (IMF). Moldova is landlocked by Romania and Ukraine, and shrunken by the secession of Transnitria. The poorest country in the European Union would be Bulgaria, with a GDP per capita (nominal) of $6,857 USD (2008 data, IMF). Another way is to look at the GDP per capita in PPP value (purchasing power parity) - even using this measure, the Republic of Moldova would be the poorest country with a GDP per capita PPP of $3,153 USD (2008, IMF). Yet again, Bulgaria would be the poorest country in the European Union. According to IMF 2008 data, the five poorest countries in Europe (GDP per capita, nominal) would be: Moldova - $1,809 USD Georgia - $2,925 USD Ukraine - $3,290 USD Armenia - $3,361 USD Albania - $4,074 USD By GDP, San Marino is the poorest country in Europe.
