Doing Business does not measure all aspects of the business environment that matter to firm or investors, such as the macroeconomic conditions, or the level of employment, corruption, stability or povertyin every country. Doing Business does not consider the strengths and weakness neither of the global financial systemnor the financial system of every country.
It also doesn't consider the state of the finances of the government of every country. Doing Business does not cover all the regulation, or all the regulatory requirements.
Other types of regulation such as financial market, environment, or intellectual property regulations that are relevant for the private sector are not considered. The Doing Business report is not intended as a complete assessment of competitiveness or of the business environment of a country and should rather be considered as a proxy of the regulatory framework faced by the private sector in a country.
