Employing correlation analysis, we investigate whether rural development in theEU countries is associated with their institutional quality represented by “good” governanceindicators of the World Bank (voice and accountability, political stability, governmenteffectiveness, regulatory quality, control of corruption). Generally, our results provideempirical support for the view that better nation-state governance goes hand in hand withbetter performance of rural economy and show that in new member states those relationships,in many cases, are stronger than in the oldest ones. Improving government quality in newmember states would help their rural areas to achieve better convergence with the EU-15.
