The World Bank Doing Business report – a valuable tool for Business Creation

The Business Creation students yesterday had the privilege to listen to
Augusto Lopez-Claros, director of Global Indicators Group at the World Bank, presenting the 2017 World Bank Doing Business report at the Royal Academy for Engineering Sciences. The presentation was introduced by Leif Johansson and Pontus Braunerhjelm.

The report stresses the huge differences between different countries in terms of barriers for doing business. Given the scope of this course this is one out of many perspectives to take into account.

According to the presented report New Zealand is the role model to follow for other countries. And by the end of the list, ranked 187, we find Venezuela, a country to avoid if possible from this perspective. Sweden is doing quite well place as number 9 just after the U.S. (8) and UK (7), but still with potential for improvements.
