Region-specific constraints to doing business: evidence from Russia

 

Abstract
This paper looks at variation across Russian regions in terms of perceived constraints to
doing business using the Business Environment and Enterprise Performance Survey of
Russian firms. The analysis identifies a number of region-specific business environment
components that businesses perceive as significantly more binding constraints to their
operations compared with other regions. For several business environment components,
however, including corruption and access to finance, inter-regional differences in their
perception as constraints are insignificant. This is consistent with the view that large
observed differences in actual financial deepening across Russian regions are primarily
demand-driven.
