Doing Business in EAC 2013

Released 2 May, "Doing Business in the East African Community 2013" takes stock of the impact of regulatory reforms in this area which has registrered significant positive economic development. Rwanda remains the best pupil in the class of 5 economies, but Burundi jumped 10 places in the world ranking thanks to several key reforms. New data show the importance of access to regulatory information. The rise in e-government initiatives in the region (as in other parts of the world) provides an opportunity to increase access to information and transparency. The report finds that "The EAC has achieved greater convergence in the complexity and cost of regulatory processes than in the strength of legal institutions relevant to business regulation."
