9781464809484 Paperback £32.50 / €37.00

This is the 14th publication in a series of annual reports comparing
business regulation in 189 economies. It ranks economies on their
ease of doing business and analyses reforms to business regulation.
This year’s report expands the paying taxes indicator and includes a
new annex which measures public procurement regulations.

Doing Business illustrates how reforms in business regulations
are being used to analyse economic outcomes for domestic
entrepreneurs and for the wider economy. It is a flagship product
produced in partnership by the World Bank Group that garners
worldwide attention on regulatory barriers to entrepreneurship.
More than 137 economies have used the Doing Business indicators
to shape reform agendas and monitor improvements on the ground.
In addition, the Doing Business data has generated over 2,182
articles in peer-reviewed academic journals since its inception.

World Economic Outlook

According to this edition of the World Economic Outlook global
growth is projected to slow to 3.1% in 2016 before recovering to
3.4% in 2017. The forecast, revised down by 0.1% for 2016 and
2017 relative to April, reflects a more subdued outlook for advanced
economies following the June UK vote in favour of leaving the
European Union (Brexit) and weaker-than-expected growth in the
United States.
