Azerbaijan is among the fastest growing economies in Europe, in part due to the country's growing energy sector
The economy of Cyprus continues to struggle as a result of the ongoing Eurozone crisis and the resulting Cypriot financial crisis

The real GDP growth rates provided are the 2015 estimates (unless otherwise indicated) as recorded in the CIA World Factbook.[2]

GDP (nominal) per capita of sovereign states in Europe

Monaco is home to one of the world's wealthiest populations, and has the highest level of GDP per capita in Europe
Like Monaco, the small size of Liechtenstein has led to it being among the highest ranked European states for GDP per capita
Luxembourg is home to an established financial sector as well as one of Europe's richest populations
Despite having the highest GDP growth rate in Europe, Moldova is among its poorest states, and also has Europe's smallest GDP per capita
