For information

Doing Business is one of the most popular rankings of countries prepared by the World Bank. The ranking characterizes the investment climate of countries. 

The World Bank’s Doing Business ranking is a result of annual researches that assess the ease of doing business based on 10 indicators in 189 countries. Components of the ranking assess the regulatory acts that regulate activities of small and medium enterprises throughout their life cycle as well as their actual use in practice. 

To improve the business climate in Ukraine and increase Ukraine’s positions in the Doing Business ranking, the Ministry of Economic Development together with the Better Regulation Delivery Office has developed the roadmap consisting of 43 points. This roadmap was approved by the CMU Resolution 1406 dated December 16, 2015.
