Competitiveness Bulletin: World Bank Highlights Need for Regulatory Reform

Date: 28 October 2015 

The World Bank’s Doing Business 2016 report provides an assessment of a range of regulations affecting SMEs throughout their life cycle. In the latest report, Ireland is ranked 17th- an improvement of 2 places from last year. To improve Ireland’s ranking, a formal, coordinated process should be established to review the administrative and regulatory procedures associated with the index, and to identify actions that can be taken to enhance the ease of doing business in Ireland.
