WASHINGTON, July 11, 2018— The World Bank Group today released the following statement on the independent external audit of Chile's rankings in the Bank Group's Doing Business report:
“We welcome the thoughtful and thorough findings of the Doing Business external review, and we are gratified to see that the review found the previous allegations concerning the integrity of the report and the broader Doing Business team to be unfounded and without merit.
We are closely considering the recommendations from the reviewers and will take steps to implement improvements as necessary. A management response on the recommendations is available here.
The Doing Business Index remains a unique and invaluable tool for countries looking to improve their business climate, and we believe that going forward it will be an even stronger and more vital report.”
