Doing Business 2010

Doing Business 2010 reported a record number of reforms between June 2008 and May 2009, despite the challenges presented by the financial crisis. This year’s reformers focused on making it easier to start and operate a business, pay taxes, and reform bankruptcy procedures to help keep companies operating and preserve jobs during tough economic times. Two regions were particularly active: Eastern Europe and Central Asia and the Middle East and North Africa. Within both regions, competition among neighbors helped inspire widespread reform.
