The World Bank published the 16th edition of the “Doing Business Report 2019” comparing 190 economies with regard to regulations and business development.

The World Bank’s report Doing Business 2019 is the 16th edition in a series of annual reports investigating the regulations that enhance business activity and those that constrain it. The report presents quantitative indicators on business regulation and the protection of property rights that can be compared across 190 economies - from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe - and over time. The report is published end of October 2018.

Regulations affecting eleven areas of the life of a business are covered: starting a business, dealing with construction permits, getting electricity, registering property, getting credit, protecting minority investors, paying taxes, trading across borders, enforcing contracts, resolving insolvency and labour market regulation. The labour market regulation data are not included in this year’s ranking on the ease of doing business.

Data in Doing Business 2019 are current as of May 1, 2018. The indicators are used to analyse economic outcomes and identify what reforms of business regulation have worked, where and why.

The results support governments in diagnosing issues in administrative procedures and correcting them.
