Doing Business in 13 Brazilian cities

This page in:

My colleagues down the hall inform me that Doing Business in Brazil was released today. Like last year's Mexico report, the Brazil report uses the Doing Business methodology to compare the ease of doing business in different parts of the country. The capital city of Brasilia takes top honors, while Fortaleza from the state of Ceara ranks last.

Brazil ranks 119 out of the 155 countries on the Doing Business list. Yet like everything in Brazil, the ease of doing business varies widely from place to place. It takes 18 months to enforce a contract in Sao Paolo, but over four years in Campo Grande. The report also finds that Rio's business community faces one of the heaviest tax burdens in the world.
