Wall Street Journal reveals the four countries at the center of irregularities reported in the Doing Business’ underlying data

(Togo First) - China, Azerbaidjan, the United Arab Emirates, and Saudi Arabia are the four countries concerned by the irregularities that pushed the World Bank to suspend, last week, the publication of its Doing Business report. This was reported by the Wall Street Journal

The Bretton Woods institution said it would probe the irregularities in the data used to produce the report. 

According to the Wall Street Journal, quoted by Le Desk, China (which is under the spotlight of the probe) moved from the 90th to 31st place within five years, in the controversial rankings. 

Let’s recall that in 2015, Paul Romer, then chief economist of the World Bank, had questioned the report citing Chile, for example, which he estimated had been unjustly demoted from the 44th to the 55th place for strictly political or electoral reasons.
