The World Bank’s annual report on the Ease of Doing Business has again ranked New Zealand in third place, for the fifth consecutive year. Singapore has kept the top place, followed by Hong Kong. Some improvement in paying taxes and resolving insolvencies in New Zealand were offset by minor changes in trading across borders and enforcing contracts.
Australia has moved up one place this year and now ranks as the 10th easiest economy in which to do business.
