The Enterprise Surveys (ES) team has released new ES follow-up survey data which measures the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on businesses for 19 economies. These include Armenia and Azerbaijan – for which the first round of the follow-up survey data were released; North Macedonia, Somalia, and Zimbabwe – for which the second round of data were released; Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Malta, Moldova, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovak Republic, and Slovenia – for which the third round of data were released. 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 similar, ongoing surveys in 46 economies. 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.
We are currently gathering data in 12 countries around the world.
