In this paper, resilience of an economic system is measured by an overall index, based on the Borman et al. index, for the period of 1996-2013. The results are then compared with Briguglio index. To measure the final index, the first step is to make variables have a similar direction. The second step is normalization of variables that their values reside between zero and one. In the last step we calculate the weighted average of variables. The value of Resilience Index is between zero and one. The closer the index to zero, the less resilient will be the economic system. In versus, The closer the index to one, the more resilient the economy. The results show that resilience was low during whole the period under consideration. Resilience reached its peak in 2001, because the budget deficit and inflation rate were reduced and governance has been improved. Then the trend started to decline. The Resilience index reached its minimum level after year 2007. According to the indeces, the main reasons were governance and market efficiency indeces.
