SPEED-Reports-2011-001 Improving Mozambique's Doing Business Rankings
The Mozambican government has firmed up its commitment to improving the country’s Doing Business rankings and the overall business enabling environment for private sector growth. The Ministry of Industry and Commerce (MIC) has been leading the way pledging that Mozambique will move up 50 places in the Doing Business rankings. The SPEED project, has been providing assistance to Mozambique in improving its Doing Business Rankings. We have undertaken in-depth analysis and provided reform recommendations relating to various Doing Business indicators: Dealing with Construction Permits; Registering Property; Paying Taxes; Trading Across Borders; Enforcing Contracts; Closing a Business; Starting a Business; Getting Credit; and Protecting Workers and Employing Workers. We have provided recommendations for the near term and longer term. And we outline guiding principles that should be taken into account in when designing and implementing reforms so that they are effective in increasing Mozambique’s Doing Business rankings and more importantly improving the enabling environment for private sector growth.
The report in the selection box above was produced by Rosario Marapusse of the SPEED project.
