World Bank to discuss replacement for ‘Doing Business’ reports

/ 09:44 AM September 29, 2022

WASHINGTON – The World Bank’s board will discuss in October plans to replace the bank’s annual “Doing Business” rankings that were canceled in September 2021 after an external report found data irregularities, World Bank President David Malpass said.

Malpass told an event hosted by Stanford University on Wednesday there were still issues to define how to assess a country’s business climate, but the bank and its various arms, including the International Finance Corp, were all working to continue encouraging private sector activity.
