Project: Improving Kazakhstan’s ranking in the World Bank’s ‘Doing Business’ report
Since 2014, Reformatics has been providing consultancy services to the Kazakh government with the objective of improving the country’s DB ranking. Thanks to Reformatics’ recommendations, Kazakhstan has reformed all of the ten areas covered by the DB report.
As a result, Kazakhstan’s 2015 DB ranking improved from #77 (#53 recalculated) to #41 in 2016, and the country recorded the highest number of reforms (19) carried out by any country. Most importantly, Kazakhstan was named 2016’s ‘Best Reformer of the Year’.
