Ease of Doing Business of Selected Oil Producing Countries in Africa

In the global ranking, Tunisia was ranked 80th position while Egypt and Nigeria was respectively in number 120th and 146th. In the ranking, starting a business, dealing with construction permits, getting electricity, registering property, getting credit, minority investment protection, paying taxes, trading across borders, enforcing contracts and resolving insolvency were all considered.

Nigeria for example has 12 in areas of getting credit facilities from financial institutions. The lower this value the better for the ease of doing business. Sudan and Congo Republic were very worst in
all standard. This may be unconnected to prolong military leadership in the countries and the intension of the military guys to be on the thrown for life. Availability of electricity happens to be
one of the social infrastructures that attracts and simplifies ways of transacting business.

Most of the African countries cannot proud of 18hours electricity supply per day on which is part of the reasons the rankings of the countries were far from the first 20 in the global ranking.
