Yesterday the World Bank released its study on Doing Business in South Africa 2015. The study compares the ease of doing businessacross all the cities of South Africa as well as other global ones. 

It conludes that "South African entrepreneurs face different regulatory hurdles depending on where they establish their businesses. This is due to varying local regulations and efficiency levels within municipalities and public agencies in charge of the 6 benchmarked areas and differences in the interpretation of nationallegislation".

The benchmarked areas are: starting a business; dealing with construction permits; getting electricity; regiatering property; enforcing contracts; and trading accross borders.

The pictures below are extracts from the book which shows the process followed by all cities in starting a business as well as recommendations to policy makers on what would improve the ease of doing business.
