Business Enabling Environment (BEE)*

The World Bank Group is formulating a new approach to assessing the business and investment climate in economies worldwide following the discontinuation of the Doing Business project. Updates on the development of the new Business Enabling Environment (BEE) project will be published on this website as they become available. In the interim, this website will act as a one-stop shop to spotlight a set of curated indicators and resources for users focused on improving the business environment.

The consultations on BEE project's Pre-concept Note were held between February 8 and March 15. To ensure transparency and accountability of the consultation process, all feedback received is made publicly available through the link below, unless the feedback provider explicitly requested to keep it confidential.

The revised and final Concept Note will be made publicly available on this website in due time. 

BEE Project Public Consultations: Consolidated Comments


Doing Business Legacy

On September 16, 2021, World Bank Group management took the decision to discontinue the Doing Business report. The Doing Business and Subnational Doing Business websites will continue to be publicly available as an archive of knowledge and data.

Alternative Existing Indicators

The World Bank Group is working on a new approach to assessing the business and investment climate. This section presents a compendium of existing indicators of business environment which may be of interest to many users. The new approach to assessing the business environment will aim to complement and fill gaps in these existing indicators.

Complementary Resources

The new business enabling environment project will not measure the full range of factors that affect an economy’s business environment. These are complementary resources relevant to the business environment that will not be measured by the new project, for example public safety and macroeconomic stability.
