World Bank (WB) Director for Bolivia, Chile, Ecuador, and Peru Alberto Rodriguez on Tuesday affirmed Peru constantly undertakes efforts to improve its environment to do business.
For that reason, the Andean nation always takes a leading position in the Doing Business ranking —an annual report published by the multilateral organization.
“The Doing Business index measures the distance between countries based on what we call an ideal business environment. In this sense, Peru always gets better,” the official expressed.
“Year after year, it (Peru) implements measures to simplify its business environment, which is very positive, as it’s getting closer to that goal,” he added.
Regarding Peru’s drop in the last ranking, Rodriguez explained it does not constitute neglect of authorities, but a relative comparison with other nations.
“It is a fall because other countries implemented measures somewhat faster than Peru (…),” the World Bank representative said.
It should be noted the Inca nation slipped 10 positions in the latest Doing Business index, going from 68th to 58th, among 190 economies.
Remarks were made during the presentation of Doing Business Peru.
