  • In the last year Spain has registered an advance in the minority investors protection indicator

The World Bank has published the Doing Business report that analyzes the conditions for conducting business in 190 countries, granting a global final grade and a grade for each area analyzed, 100 being the reference value. Spain remains among the 30 best countries in the world to do business, with a score of 77.9 points.

In the analyzed period, which corresponds to the months between May 2, 2018 and May 1, 2019, Spain has improved the distance to the reference value, going from 77.68 to 77.9 points, the best result since 2008

Doing Business focuses on 10 regulatory areas that influence the business climate of a country. During the last year, Spain has improved the score and raised two positions in the minority investors protection indicator thanks to the reform of the Capital Companies Law.

Likewise, there is a slight improvement or maintenance of the score in relation to the reference value in the other indicators analyzed. However, there is a drop in ranking in the indicators of opening a company, obtaining credit and obtaining electricity due to the improvement in the score of other countries.

In the comparison with the best positioned European economies, Spain remains in the eleventh position.
