Bloomberg released the ranking of the best countries in the world to do business in. Hong Kong, the entrance to the Chinese market, is obviously no. 1. Following closely are the Netherlands and the USA (for the whole list of countries, see the list incorporated in the article). UK and Australia are also attractive destination in this category.
Bloomberg ranking base its ranking on 6 factors: The cost of setting up a business, hiring and moving goods; Economic intergration; inflation and corruption; other economics dimensions, such as the size of the middle class, household consumption and GDP per capita.
This is quite interesting and personally I would like to know more about the experience of expats in these fields.
