Global Enabling Trade Report
The Global Enabling Trade Report is a publication prepared by the World Economic Forum ranking 125 countries based on an index of factors “that facilitate the free flow of goods across national borders and to destination.” In the 2009 survey, the Philippines ranked 82nd overall, ahead only of Vietnam among the ASEAN-6. In 2010, Vietnam passed the Philippines which ranked 92nd overall, down 10 places from 2009. The Philippines performed worst in business environment (the quality of overall governance impacting operations of importers and exporters) where it was 103rd overall. The country also did poorly in other areas, 77th overall for quality of transportation and communication infrastructure and 68th for border administration. Percentile rankings are shown in Figure 52.
