The DTF score measures the distance of each economy to the “frontier” which represents the best performance observed on each of the indicators across all economies in the Doing Business sample since 2005.

In this aspect, the latest DB report released on Wednesday, said Brunei is placed first of the 10 most improved economies which are Kazakhstan, Kenya, Belarus, Indonesia, Serbia, Georgia, Pakistan, United Arab Emirates and Bahrain.
