Guyana - Investment Climate Survey 2004

Primary tabs

Guyana Investment Climate Survey was carried out between November 2004 and March 2005. 163 manufacturing firms were surveyed. The Investment Climate Surveys (ICS) were conducted by the World Bank and its partners across all geographic regions and covered firms of all sizes in many industries. The ICS collected a wide array of qualitative and quantitative information through face-to-face interviews with managers and owners regarding the investment climate in their country and the productivity of their firms. Topics covered in the ICS included the obstacles to doing business, infrastructure, finance, labor, corruption and regulation, contract enforcement, law and order, innovation and technology, and firm productivity. Taken together, the qualitative and quantitative data helped connect country’s investment climate characteristics with firm productivity and performance. Firm-level surveys have been administered since 1998 by different units within the World Bank. Since 2005-06, most data collection efforts have been centralized within the Enterprise Analysis Unit (FPDEA). Enterprise Surveys, a replacement for Investment Climate Surveys, are now conducted by the Enterprise Analysis Unit.

After determining the sample size at the sector level, the sample was stratified by location, size range, capacity and quality control. The final sample includes micro and small (46 percent of the sample), medium (36 percent), and large firms (18 percent).
