The Business Ready (B-READY) team conducted a series of two-day methodology workshops worldwide.
Their main purpose was to provide a detailed presentation on the project’s methodology, including
overall scope and topic-specific information. The workshops also served to raise awareness about this
new benchmarking initiative and disseminate its potential for reform advocacy, policy advice, and
development research.

The workshops took place in various regions to maximize their outreach and benefit. Specifically, they
took place in Amman (Middle East and North Africa), Dakar (French speaking Sub-Saharan Africa), Kuala
Lumpur (East and South Asia and the Pacific), Nairobi (English speaking Sub-Saharan Africa), Panama City
(Latin America and the Caribbean), Warsaw (Europe and Central Asia), and Washington, DC (World Bank
Group Headquarter).

Ms. Ambreen Iftikhar, Additional Secretary Reforms and Mr. Zulfiqar Ali, Director General Board of
Investment attended the workshop from Pakistan held in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia on May 11-12, 2023
