Georgia now ranks 11th on the ease of doing business [from 16th] in the rating prepared by thw World bank and the International Finance Corporation - Business Gruzia.gt-en-newsitem-inside
"Georgia ranks 11th globally on the ease of doing business, by implementing reforms in two areas: dealing with construction permits and trading across borders. Georgia eased the process for dealing with construction permits by introducing a simplified process for obtaining confirmation from utilities, a risk-based approval process for building permits, and new time limits for the occupancy certificate. The documentation requirements for import and export were simplified, and there was a significant decrease in the cost of trade.
Globally, a record 131 of the 183 economies surveyed reformed business regulations between June 2008 and May 2009, according to the report, the seventh in a series of annual reports published by IFC and the World Bank" the message of the WB states.
