The state of Andhra Pradesh has bagged the top spot in the Ease of Doing Business (EDB) list announced by Asia Competitiveness Institute (ACI). The list was compiled by a group of researchers led by Tan Khee Giap, Co-Director, ACI. Maharashtra and Delhi stood second and third respectively on the list.

The EDB survey was based on three ABC paramaters-Attractiveness to Investors, Business Friendliness and Competitiveness Policies. 

Dr Giap, while addressing media along with Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu, opined that Andhra Pradesh receiving the top honours testifies the government’s efforts in ensuring a business-friendly environment in the state.
