The World Bank Group has created the "Doing Business Map," a visual learning tool to complement the Doing Business database, which provides objective measures of business regulations and their enforcement across 175 economies.
Take a trip around the world to discover how easy (or difficult) it is to do business in various developing countries. Click on green, yellow, or red placemarks to learn more about each country. Countries marked with a star were the top 10 reformers in 2005/06, the timeframe of the most recent Doing Business report.
