Ease of Doing Business

Date : 13/08/2009

Author:  anu abraham

The World Bank Group has published their annual "Doing Business" report that ranks 181 countries on how friendly their regulatory climate is to entrepreneurs. The report provides a quantitative measure of regulations for starting a business as they apply to domestic small and medium-size enterprises. Economies are ranked on their ease of doing business. The ease of doing business index means the regulatory environment is conducive to the operation of business.

To make the data comparable across economies, detailed assumptions about the type of business are used. Among these assumptions are the following: the business is a limited liability company conducting general commercial activities in the largest business city; it is 100% domestically owned, with a start-up capital of 10 times income per capita, a turnover of at least 100 times income per capita and between 10 and 50 employees; and it does not qualify for any special benefits, nor does it own real estate.
 
According to the Doing Business report, covering the period June 2007 through May 2008 , the top ten economies are :

Interestingly Saudi Arabia scores higher than Kuwait  on the parameters of Starting a business, Registering property and Trading across borders. Also, Kuwait scores higher than UAE on parameters of Protecting Investors, Enforcing Contracts and Closing a business.
 
At an overall level GCC states scored poorly on enforcing contracts and starting a business reflecting the need to enhance legislation and improve governance related parameters.
 
Though the survey is based on a combination of qualitative and quantitative factors, the survey raises interesting pointers for the GCC governments.
