The Enterprise Surveys (ES) team has released new survey data for France, Spain and Timor-Leste. In addition to the core questions included in all standard ES, the survey from France has questions on business-government relations, management practices, technology adoption, and COVID-19; the survey from Spain has questions on business-government relations, time use of top managers, management practices, and COVID-19; and the survey from Timor-Leste has questions on the green economy and COVID-19.
Since our last communication, the ES team has also released the fourth round of the ES follow-up survey data which measures the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on businesses for Jordan; the third round from Georgia, Lebanon, and North Macedonia; and the second round from Armenia, and Mozambique. These surveys re-interview the respondents of recently completed ES to collect information about closures (temporary or permanent), changes in sales, employment, and finance, along with policy responses, expectations, and other topics. The ES team has comparable surveys in 46 countries. The data are released as soon as they become available.
This report presents the findings of Enterprise Surveys conducted in eight economies in the region in 2013 and 2014: Djibouti, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Tunisia, the West Bank and Gaza, and Yemen. By analyzing detailed information on more than 6,000 private firms in the manufacturing and services sectors, the report provides fine-grained insights into the key drivers of firms’ performance and the major challenges of the business environment in which they operate.
