RIYADH - Saudi Arabia ranked fourth in terms of the number of reforms that would contribute to improving business environment at the G20 level, said the World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business 2019 report.

The report, published on Wednesday, said that the Kingdom progressed this year in four indices related to doing business, namely the index of protection of minority investors, the index of implementing contracts, the index of obtaining building license and cross-border trade index, the Saudi Press Agency reported.

The Kingdom achieved its first progress since 2012 in the World Competitiveness Report (GCR) of 2018, issued recently by the World Economic Forum (WEF), where it ranked 39 out of 140 countries.
