So say the results of the 2018 World Bank annual report on the impact of regulation on commercial activity across 190 countries.

- Which countries are in the top and bottom rankings for business-friendly climates;
- How regulatory reform, including transparency improvements, is progressing worldwide; and
- How changes to insolvency procedures are increasing business formation and reducing nonperforming loans.
