Investment Climate

The Investment Climate Advisory Services of the World Bank Group helps governments implement reforms to improve their business environment, and encourage and retain investment, thus fostering competitive markets, growth and job creation.


A sound investment climate provides private firms with opportunities and incentives to invest and grow and is key to sustaining growth and reducing poverty. A vibrant private sector creates jobs, provides the necessary goods and services to improve living standards, and contributes taxes to fund health, education, and other public goods. But all too often potential private sector contributions to development are constrained by unjustified risks, costs, and barriers to competition.
