Digital Business Indicators


Digital Business Indicators is a joint initiative between the Global Indicators Group of the Development Economics Vice Presidency, the Digital Development Global Practice, and the Macroeconomics, Trade, and Investment Global Practice, with inputs from other World Bank teams and practices. Launched in 2017, the initiative aims to advocate a research agenda that will develop the best regulatory and policy practices for governments seeking to promote the digital economy, particularly from the lens of doing business. Digital Business Indicators measure the laws, regulations, and bureaucratic processes that affect digital businesses in 21 pilot countries. Five topics are covered: connectivity, data privacy and security, logistics, payment, and digital market regulations.
