Enterprise Surveys incl. Investment Climate Assessment

Enterprise Surveys is powered by the World Bank Group and can be accessed via registration. You will then be granted access to a database concerning the business conditions for a wide selection of different developing countries. Information on infrastructure for business purposes, interaction with government officials, productivity, financing amongst more general information is found here. Many countries have only been subject to one survey, and the database is therefore in some cases better for comparing across countries than across time. 

As part of the Enterprise Surveys is the Investment Climate Assessment (ICA).
