ICF commends Rwanda on being named "top reformer" in the World Bank's 'Doing Business 2010' report

(lifePR) (Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, ) The Investment Climate Facility for Africa (ICF) today commends Rwanda for becoming the first Sub-Saharan African economy to be named "top reformer" in a World Bank study that tracks the ease of doing business in 183 countries around the world. The 'Doing Business 2010' report sees Rwanda jump from 143rd to 67th place in the rankings, with Liberia also being named among the "top ten reformers". Other African countries noted for improving their ease of doing business rankings include Burkina Faso, Liberia, Mali, Sierra Leone, Zambia and Cape Verde.

ICF's Chief Executive Officer, Mr Omari Issa, comments: "The fact that so many African countries have improved their 'Doing Business 2010' report rankings is testament to the commitment of their respective governments who are taking steps to address business fundamentals. Great progress is being made in many African countries to reduce bureaucracy, regulation, and red-tape and to improve poor infrastructure, in order to improve the continent's business environment and support economic growth.

"A healthy commercial environment is as much about confidence as it is about opportunities and resources and we hope that the improvements recognised in this year's 'Doing Business 2010' report will encourage more governments to convert goodwill into fast, measurable and practical action."

The following table summarises the rankings of countries that ICF is currently supporting, and details their current projects.
