How business registers are built and updated in Egypt? In Algeria? How many businesses are in Morocco? In Jordan? In which sectors of activities do you find most of the businesses? These are the kind of questions that are answered in this new publication from the business register and statistics sector of MEDSTAT IV.

During several months, the ENP-S countries worked together at exchanging and discussing the details of the elaboration and updating of their respective business registers. The countries provided the project with their latest data on enterprises extracted from their registers. Methodological information concerning the latest update and other characteristics have been added in order to ease the comparison among the countries.

All those information are presented in the harmonised tables that constitute the first section of the publication. This is the first time that these data are released for the whole region.

The MEDSTAT IV project provides expertise and technical support to promote the harmonisation of statistics in line with EU and international standards in 6 domains: business register and business, trade and balance of payments, energy, labour market, migration and transport. It follows on the previous phase implemented over the period 2010-2013.
