Doing Business 2017: Equal Opportunity for All

Primus Lithuania lawyers Greta Bagdanavičiūtė, Liutauras Baikštys, Giedrė Dailidėnaitė, Artūras Gutauskas, Robert Juodka, Tomas Venckus, Ernesta Žiogienė contributed to the World Bank’s 14th annual report “Doing Business 2017: Equal Opportunity for All”.

Doing Business 2017: Equal Opportunity for All, a World Bank Group flagship publication, is the 14th in a series of annual reports measuring the regulations that enhance business activity and those that constrain it. Doing Business presents quantitative indicators on business regulations and the protection of property rights that can be compared across 190 economies—from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe—and over time.

Doing Business measures regulations affecting 11 areas of the life of a business. Ten of these areas are included in this year’s ranking on the ease of doing business: starting a business, dealing with construction permits, getting electricity, registering property, getting credit, protecting minority investors, paying taxes, trading across borders, enforcing contracts and resolving insolvency. Doing Business also measures labor market regulation, which is not included in this year’s ranking.
