This slipped under my notice as I’ve simply been so used to seeing Singapore at the top over the years.
The latest World Bank “Ease of Doing Business” survey ranks New Zealand as the global top performer for the second year running. Not surprisingly, Singapore remains the top performer in Asia (2nd overall) with South Korea and Hong Kong also in the global top 10. Brunei has shown the best improvement in the region, in line with the Nation’s ambition to rival Singapore’s commercial success.
Rankings across Asia are shown below.
