CKT contribute to ‘Doing Business in the European Union 2020 – Greece, Ireland and Italy’

Comyn Kelleher Tobin’s Alison Kelleher, Hilda O’Keeffe, David Ryan and Barry Murphy have been acknowledged for their contribution to the ‘Doing Business in the European Union 2020: Greece, Ireland and Italy’ report. 

The report, produced by the World Bank Group in association with the European Commission, compares business regulation for domestic firms in 24 cities in Greece, Ireland and Italy with 187 other economies. In Ireland the report examines the business regulatory environment and its impact on local entrepreneurs in Cork, Dublin, Galway, Limerick and Waterford across five areas relevant to the life cycle of SMEs – starting a business; dealing with construction permits; getting electricity; registering property; and enforcing contracts.

The purpose of the report is to provide data on the ease of doing business in each city, identify regulatory constraints, contribute to the dissemination of best practices and provide policy recommendations on how to improve the business regulatory environment.

Findings from the report for Ireland were presented at an event organized by the Government of Ireland in Dublin, with the participation of national and local officials, representatives of public agencies and private sector stakeholders.

Comyn Kelleher Tobin was a private sector contributor helping with the research team for the report. All materials are available on the Doing Business site.
