44050: Doing Business in the Philippines 2008 : comparing regulation in 21 Cities and 178 Economies

Doing business in the Philippines 2008 is a new sub national report of the doing business series in East Asia, following the doing business report in China. Doing Business in the Philippines 2008 covers 21 cities that can be compared against each other, and with 178 economies around the world. The study includes 15 cities in Metro Manila: Caloocan, Las Pinas, Makati, Malabon, Mandaluyong, Marikina, Muntinlupa, Navotas, Paranaque, Pasay, Pasig, Quezon City, San Juan, Taguig, Valenzuela, 3 cities in the Visayas: Cebu, Lapu-Lapu and Mandaue, as well as Tanauan, and Davao. Comparisons with national results (as measured in Manila) and the rest of the world are based on the indicators in doing business 2008 and other sub national doing business reports. Since 2004, doing business publishes annual studies on the ways in which government regulations enhance or restrain business activity. The indicators discussed in this report and agreed with counterparts cover 3 doing business topics: starting a business, dealing with licenses and registering property. These indicators have been selected because they cover areas of local jurisdiction or practice. The indicators are used to analyze the economic outcomes of the regulations and to identify what reforms have worked, where and why.
