We recognize that many factors play a role in shaping an economy’s business climate. The B-READY project does not aim to measure all aspects of the business and investment climates. Existing indicators already measure many of these aspects.

Resources in five areas that are highly pertinent to shaping a country’s business environment are listed below. Additional data sources will be added over time.
