Giuseppe Broccoli, Elisabetta Ventrella and Fabio Zanchi have contributed to the 'Doing Business 2018: Reforming to create jobs' survey for Italy in respect of the following sections:
- Starting a Business;
- Dealing with Construction Permits;
- Registering Property;
- Protecting Investors.
Doing Business 2018: Reforming to Create Jobs, a World Bank Group flagship publication, is the 15th in a series of annual reports measuring the regulations that enhance business activity and those that constrain it. Doing Business presents quantitative indicators on business regulations and the protection of property rights that can be compared across 190 economies—from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe—and over time.
Doing Business measures regulations affecting 11 areas of the life of a business. Ten of these areas are included in this year’s ranking on the ease of doing business: starting a business, dealing with construction permits, getting electricity, registering property, getting credit, protecting minority investors, paying taxes, trading across borders, enforcing contracts and resolving insolvency.
