NZ A Topped Rank Place To Do Business…

Bloody easy says the World Bank… I think they kinda miss the point though. Might be easy to do business there but most entrepreneurs I know are more interested in doing business here. That would be another axis on the chart that I might fear lead to a different outcome than this:

  1. New Zealand
  2. Singapore
  3. United States
  4. Canada
  5. Norway

So, entrepreneurs in Serbia and Montenegro can register new businesses online, and if the entrepreneur has not heard from the government in five days, the business can start. Now try getting your product to market in Japan or the US.

Sorry for the cynicism but I deal with Kiwi companies trying to break into the US every day and am all to familiar with the real challenge they face.

Thanks to Guy & Peep for flagging.
