DOING BUSINESS 2011 Making a Difference for Entrepreneurs
The Doing Business project of the World Bank provides objective measures of business regulations for local firms in 183 economies and selected cities at the subnational level. Doing Business reports gather and analyze comprehensive quantitative data to compare business regulation environments across economies and over time. Annual reports offer measurable benchmarks for reform. Detailed subnational reports cover different cities and regions within a nation.
Doing Business 2011 is now available. Visit the link and download the full report for free. Results are not surprising: as usual the report specify that doing business remains easiest in the high-income economies of the Organization for Economic Co-Operation and Development and most difficult in Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia. Nevertheless, unexpected economies such as Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Rwanda, Cape Verde, Brunei Darussalam and Zambia take part in list of the 10 most-improved economies, side by side to Hungary, Peru, Vietnam, and Grenada. www.doingbusiness.org/reports (https://www.fita.org/)
