Peru is the best country to do business in Latin America, according to the World Bank’s latest Doing Business report. The country’s business regulations improved the most across the region and placed 36 among the 183 economies in the report. This is 10 spots higher that Peru’s ranking last year, the International Finance Corporation, which co-authored the report, said in a news release. Peru also made it to the top 10 list of the world’s most active economies in the past year, improving in four of the nine areas covered by the World Bank.
