Doing Business in the Philippines 2011
|Reforms Fact Sheet|
Doing Business investigates the regulations that enhance business activity and those that constrain it. Regulations affecting 3 stages of the life of a local business are measured at the subnational level in the Philippines: starting a business, dealing with construction permits, and registering property. These indicators are used to identify business reforms and the extent to which these have been effective in simplifying the procedures, saving time, and lowering the cost of doing business.
