Ease of doing business in Pakistan

I saw this World bank report a few months ago for the first time when it confirmed something that I had suspected all along. We don’t know how good we have it here in this country. If you are too busy being negative here is what you need to know:

We are ranked at number 2 overall in South ASIA, and in the upper half of all countries globally when it comes to ease of doing business. Our strengths (where we score fairly high) include

  1. Starting a business
  2. Registering property
  3. Getting credit
  4. Protecting investors
  5. Trading across borders
  6. Closing a business

Why is this important? If you believe like I do that the future of this country is in the hands of small business, making it easier to do business for everyone is a step in the right direction.
