The Enterprise Surveys (ES) team has released three sets of surveys – standard ES, Micro and Informal – for Zambia. Additionally, the ES team has also released new survey data for Bulgaria, Lebanon, and the Slovak Republic, collected in partnership with EBRD and EIB. New survey data on Micro enterprises from Armenia is also now available. A new data for Bosaso and Mogadishu, Somalia, covering formal and informal businesses are also released.
These new surveys include country-specific questions in addition to the core questions included in all standard ES. Specifically, the surveys from Bulgaria, Lebanon, and the Slovak Republic include additional questions on the green economy, regulatory governance, and the use of managers’ time. And the Zambia survey includes questions on trade, competition, regulatory uncertainty, and mobile money.
