- Fri, 21 Nov 2014 15:35:05 +0000: Business Climate Improves in Many African Countries but Access to Electricity Remains a Challenge - MBDA Syndicated News Feed
Created on November 21, 2014
Doing business in Africa is not always easy, but the business climate is improving in many African countries, the World Bank’s latest Doing Business report shows.
The latest version of the Bank’s widely-watched report shows that many countries in Sub-Saharan Africa have adopted reforms related to starting a business, protecting investors, paying taxes and registering property. Five of 10 countries listed for a “most improved” business climate – Benin, Togo, Cote d’Ivoire, Senegal and Democratic Republic of Congo – were in Sub-Saharan Africa.
While showing significant improvement in many of the factors that are needed to attract private investment, the report also serves to underscore some of the persistent challenges to doing business on the continent. Among those African countries that made the most-improved list, only one, the Democratic Republic of Congo, was recognized for adopting reforms related specifically to accessing electricity, a key challenge throughout the continent that severely limits business activity.
