Bank Group which indicates the ease of doing business in a country.

• Higher rankings (a low numerical value) indicate better, usually simpler,

regulations for businesses and stronger protections of property rights.

• Empirical research funded by the World Bank to justify their work show
that the effect of improving these regulations on economic growth is strong.

• The index is based on the study of laws and regulations, with the input and
verification by more than 9,600 government officials, lawyers, business
consultants, accountants and other professionals in 185 economies who
routinely advise on or administer legal and regulatory requirements.

necessary in practice to complete a procedure with minimum follow-up with

up to 3 months following incorporation and is recorded as a percentage of the
e o o y’s i o e per apita. The a ou t is typi ally spe ified i the o er ial
