Doing Business research is a great tool to benchmark countries in ease of doing business measures. Doing Business ratings  stimulate growth-enhancing reforms around the globe. Governments worldwide actively read Doing Business studies and many use Doing Business data in crafting national policies.

 „New Zealand has always been a top performer in the Doing Business indicator for starting a business, with a notably simple registration system requiring less one day and no trip to the registration authority.“ – States Ieva Tarailiene, Head of Registry Practice at Norway Registers Development AS and NRD Companies. “In contrast, entrepreneurs in Venezuela, RB must complete 20 procedures taking up to 230 days before starting their businesses.“

Improvement of business environment around the globe is one of the key focus areas of NRD Companies. It is evident that the world is becoming digitized at a furious pace with the development of a new technology. Digitization has been and continues to be a driving force and an enabler. Through digitization, new opportunities and solutions are created.

„My call to action for all national authorities around the globe is: contribute to the research actively, read data carefully, make precise conclusions and  build plans for the improvement.“ – says Ieva Tarailiene.
