Bahrain among top 20 improvers for ease of doing business

Bahrain is among the top 20 improvers in the world based on the ease of doing business, a report has found.

According to the World Bank report, the Kingdom’s reform programme has made it easier to do business in nine out of the ten areas looked at.

It attributes the positive changes to the Economic Vision 2030, which has seen new scanners installed on King Fahd Causeway, an electronic system created for property registration, and new laws on insolvency.

The Top-20 improvers in Doing Business 2020 report also notes the introduction of dedicated venues to resolve commercial disputes, and differentiated lanes for border crossings on the causeway.

Out of 100, Bahrain's score was 69.85, and the Kingdom was ranked 62nd in the world.

The average score across the Middle East and North Africa was 58.3, and Bahrain beat every other GCC state in the rankings.
