"Doing Business" reforms in Poland

I forgot to write about it before, but in January we finally published the World Bank's "Doing Business Reform Memorandum", whose preparation I have coordinated. The report was completed already in June 2010, but it took some time to publish it.

The main message of the report is that there is scope for substantial improvement in the business climate in Poland by streamlining five key areas measured by the Doing Business Report: starting a business, obtaining construction permits, paying taxes, protecting investors and registering a property.

If the recommended reforms were to be implemented, I am convinced that Poland could become the Top 10 Reformer in the next edition of the Doing Business Report and advance to the first 50 in the global report from 70th place now.
