|Houston – The Greater Houston Partnership, in collaboration with the World Affairs Council of Houston, today announced it will host a luncheon discussing the findings of the 2010 World Bank Doing Business Report. In its eighth year, the report provides objective measurements of the business climate in 183 countries. |
The Doing Business Report has become an incentive for reform and the objective criteria used by the World Bank as it considers investment opportunities. Among the standards the report considers when assessing the viability of business climates around the world are the ease with which one can: start a business; navigate the permitting process; secure credit; trade across borders; and access electricity. Sylvia Solf, program manager of the Doing Business Project, will review the report in detail during her keynote address.
