- Business Environment and Enterprise Performance Survey (BEEPS)
Ongoing project that aims to provide feedback from enterprises on the state of the private sector in participating countries by assessing the constraints to private sector growth. A primary goal is to capture indicators of the business environment and firm-state interaction.
Objective is to obtain feedback from enterprises in client countries on the state of the private sector as well as to help in building a panel of enterprise data that will make it possible to track changes in the business environment over time.
