HETFA (2010): International Surveys on Administrative Burdens. ISSN 2062-3798

The purpose of this paper is to present Hungary’s competitiveness and the degree of administrative burdens, which make the work of Hungarian businesses troublesome. In our analysis we compare international competitiveness indexes, including the data of the Doing Business Index (set up by the World Bank), the Global Competitiveness Index (prepared by the World Economic forum), the World Competitiveness Yearbook (established by the Swiss IMD institute) and the Economic Freedom Index (produced by the Heritage Foundation). We display the data collection and ranking process of these indexes, and report the changes of the past few years.
