Sri Lanka has been placed 89th on a World Bank ranking improving its position from 110 in 2011.
"The Government has taken an initiative to improve Sri Lanka’s ranking as global indices are often used by international investors to make an initial assessment of the country," the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce said.
"While no ranking system is perfect and the same counts for the assessment of Ease of Doing Business, what is more important is actual progress in reforms to have a material improvement in the regulatory framework and systems to ease business processes."
