This economy profile for Doing Business
2015 presents the 11 Doing Business indicators for The
Gambia. To allow for useful comparison, the profile also
provides data for other selected economies (comparator
economies) for each indicator. Doing Business 2015 is the
12th edition in a series of annual reports measuring the
regulations that enhance business activity and those that
constrain it. Economies are ranked on their ease of doing
business; for 2015 The Gambia ranks 138. A high ease of
doing business ranking means the regulatory environment is
more conducive to the starting and operation of a local
firm. Doing Business presents quantitative indicators on
business regulations and the protection of property rights
that can be compared across 189 economies from Afghanistan
to Zimbabwe and over time. Doing Business measures
regulations affecting 11 areas of the life of a business
known as indicators. Ten of these areas are included in this
year's ranking on the ease of doing business: starting
a business, dealing with construction permits, getting
electricity, registering property, getting credit,
protecting minority investors, paying taxes, trading across
borders, enforcing contracts, and resolving insolvency.
Doing Business also measures labor market regulation, which
is not included in this year's ranking. The data in
this report are current as of June 1, 2014 (except for the
paying taxes indicators, which cover the period from January
to December 2013).
