World Bank’s Report on Ease of Business Doing, 2013

Even though Ethiopia is among the top fast growing economies in the world, according to the World Bank, its position in its ease of business doing reports has been eroding in the last two years. From the high point of 104th position in 2011 its ranking has slipped back to 127th in the current ranking. Singapore is able to maintain its position of being the easiest place to do business in for the last five years, while two of the BRICKS countries: India and Brazil are placed below Ethiopia in the ranking. Central African Republic is the last country in the ranking, holding 185th place, preceded by Chad, Congo and Eritrea consequently.
