AJC recognized for its contribution to the 2021 Doing Business reports.
Founded in 2002, the Doing Business project is a series of annual studies measuring the regulations that enhance business activity. It is now a World Bank Group flagship publication.
The reports use objective, quantitative indicators on business regulation and the protection of property rights in order to rank 190 economies and selected cities at the subnational and regional level.
Doing Business covers 12 areas of business regulation:
- 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
- regulation on employing workers
- contracting with the government
To collect reliable data from those 190 economies, the 2021 Doing Business reports relied on more than 48,000 professionals across a host of industries.
