Abstract

Many people who use Doing Business data—particularly in policy-making circles and in the private sector—associate better performance on the Doing Business indicators with greater inflows of foreign direct investment (FDI), even though the methodology is not explicitly designed for this purpose. Since the launch of last year’s report nearly 2,000 articles in the international press have drawn a connection between FDI and Doing Business.
