Best Country for Business in Europe

The International Finance Corporation (IFC), a commercial arm of the World Bank, has ranked Norway 5th in the world and 1st in Europe for doing business. IFC's director Michael Klein stated that Norway has reformed over the past decade, and this has greatly improved business evironment. The German Klein added that "to make life easy for business does not mean that you have to be like the USA with regards to public services."

Making life easier for business is not excactly a top priority for the new government, which is more concerned about the mood of Labour Unionleader Gerd-Liv Valla. I wonder where we are on this list in 4 years...
