Doing Business presents quantitative indicators on business regulation and the protection of property rights and their enforcement that can be compared across 190 economies – from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe.
Doing Business covers 12 areas of business regulation. Ten of these areas—starting a business, dealing with construction permits, getting electricity, registering property, getting credit, protecting minority investors, paying taxes, trading across borders, enforcing contracts, and resolving insolvency—are included in the ease of doing business score and ease of doing business ranking. Doing Business also measures regulation on employing workers and contracting with the government, which are not included in the ease of doing business score and ranking.
In the report for 2020, Serbia is ranked on the 44th place, which is four places up compared to last year.
