Doing Business in Zambia (2013 Report)

The World Bank last week released the latest results of its Doing Business series. The report Doing Business 2013: Smarter Regulations for Small and Medium-Size Enterprises assesses regulations affecting domestic firms in 185 economies and ranks the economies in 10 areas of business regulation, such as starting a business, resolving insolvency and trading across borders. This year’s report data cover regulations measured from June 2011 through May 2012. The Zambia report is embedded below. Unsurprisingly given the time frame coverage very little reform took place over the period due to elections and subsequent concerns. Zambia slipped 4 places on the rankings (90 in DB2012 to 94 in DB2013) but this is not because it got worse, but because it undertook less reforms (not all the supposed reforms are necessary good!).
