The World Bank published on Wednesday, October 26, 2016 the Doing Business Report 2017. The report reveals that Tunisia has lost two places to the 77th spot out of 190 countries on the ease of doing business.
Furthermore, the report indicated that Tunisia has improved its overall score from 63.91 to 64.89, following the adoption of a key reform to improve its system for assessing the creditworthiness of borrowers.
Regarding the Maghreb, Morocco (68th spot) and Algeria (156th) experienced a significant improvement in the business environment.
No progress has been registered by the Doing Business indicators for Libya (ranked 188th), which is, logically, at the bottom of this ranking because of political instability.
The MENA region (Middle East and North Africa) is the region that has implemented the largest number of reforms since 2009, with 35 reforms in 15 economies of 20 countries in the region.
