Mapping the Way Forward: The Launch of the 2016 Doing Business Report

October 30, 2015 • 5:00 – 6:30 pm EDT

Launched in 2003, the Doing Business project aims to provide an objective basis for understanding and improving the regulatory environment for business around the world. Generated from comprehensive quantitative data collection and analysis, these annual reports compare business regulation environments across economies and over time, providing data on the ease of doing business, ranking each location, and recommending reforms to improve performance in each of the indicator areas.

Please join us for the official launch of the World Bank's 2016 Doing Business Report. Augusto Lopez-Claros, Director of the Global Indicators Group, will present the report, followed by an expert panel discussion on the implications of these findings for actors in a post-2015 development world.
