1 Investment Climate Drivers: Does Governance and Corruption Matter? An Empirical Framework with Practical Applications Daniel Kaufmann, World Bank Institute Presentation at the University of Wisconsin Business School, Madison, December 17 th,

2 Key Themes 1. Improving the Investment Climate: Fundamental Challenge for Emerging Economies WDR All Firms: Key Actor in Driving Growth and Responding to Investment Climate 3. Some Firms: Not Passive Investment Climate Takers? 4. How Governance affects the Investment Climate 5. Learn from Variation across countries & Institutions 6. Implications and Challenges ahead 2

3 world development report 2005 A Better Investment Climate for Everyone 3

4 The investment climate: The opportunities and incentives for firms to invest productively, create jobs, and expand Private firms of all types are key actors in growth and poverty reduction Create more than 90 percent of jobs. Provide goods & services consumed in society Pay taxes for public service provision Size of contribution depends largely on the investment climate But who shapes the investment climate? 4

5 Accelerating Growth and Reducing Poverty Growth closely associated with poverty reduction Percent per annum, GDP per capita growth rate Poverty reduction Pakistan Bangladesh India Vietnam China Main sources of long-term growth are investment and productivity improvements -- a good investment climate drives both, and protects other social interests But also need to account for direct impacts -- jobs and self-employment are main paths out of poverty 5

6 Policy and Institutional costs Taxes are rarely the biggest burden in emerging economies Governance, Institutional factors are key 6

7 Variations within countries & across firms Conditions vary within countries Days to obtain a mainline telephone connection % of production lost due to power outages 7 6 Small firms often suffer most Percentage of firms 75 Large 5 50 Days Percent Medium Small 5 1 Informal 0 Shanghai Beijing Chengdu China 0 0 Have a loan from a formal financial institution Confident that courts will uphold property rights Believe regulations will be interpreted consistently 7

8 Persistence, not perfection, is key No country has a perfect investment climate. Focus on important constraints, and sustain a process of ongoing improvements. Priorities need to be determined in each case Big differences across, and within, countries. Maintaining momentum is essential Public communication Consultation bodies Mechanisms to review existing constraints Processes to review new regulatory proposals. 8

9 Focus on delivering the basics To benefit all firms and activities in the economy Stability and security -- Peace & macroeconomic stability: fundamental -- Secure property rights; control of corruption; link effort to reward Regulation and taxation --Better regulation and taxation, not necessarily less Finance and infrastructure Workers and labor markets Skilled and healthy workforce Regulate to benefit all workers Help workers cope with change 9

10 Going beyond the basics? Selective interventions Many rationales, but no sure-fire strategies. More ambitious the goal, and the weaker the governance, the longer the odds of success. Not a substitute for broader improvements. Can be a distraction, and can go spectacularly wrong. International rules and standards Committing to enhance credibility Forgone flexibility; Possible legitimacy concerns. Harmonizing to reduce costs Institutional fit; competition between standards. Cooperating to address policy spillovers Common priorities; capacity constraints. 10

11 The international community can help Growth from better investment climate can dwarf value of aid flows Manufacturing value-added vs. global aid flows International community should do more Reduce distortions in developed countries Strengthen aid for investment climate improvements 11 Tackle substantial knowledge agenda.

12 Key Lessons from WDR 2005 Improving the investment climate critical to faster growth and poverty reduction. Reduce policy-related risks, costs, and barriers to competition Persistence, not perfection, key to progress International community should do more Much more than changes in formal policies the challenge of informality 12

13 Explosion of activities: Examples of major programs launched across countries Albania (public admin.) Latvia (anticorruption) Ukraine (tax admin) Russia (customs/treasury) Kyrgyz Republic (governance reform) Jordan (civil society) Cambodia (PE; forestry) Guatemala (diagnostic to action program) Colombia (diagnostics & civil society) Bolivia: (public admin.) Ghana (PE accountability) Gabon (water/electricity) Uganda (PRSC; education) Tanzania (PSR) Pakistan (devolution) Ethiopia (decentralization) Bangladesh (civil society) Philippines (transport) Indonesia (local governance) India Andra Pradesh (power; e-gov); Karnataka (right to info) 13

14 Empirical Approach to Governance 1. Macro : Worldwide Aggregate Governance Indicators: 200 countries, 6 components, periodic. 2. Mezzo : Cross-Country Surveys of Enterprises 3. Micro : Specialized, in-depth, in-country Governance and Institutional Capacity Diagnostics: Includes surveys of: i) user of public services (citizens); ii) firms, and iii) public officials On Aggregate/Macro Level first 14

15 The Governance Macro Level Defining and unbundling succintly The 6 dimensions of Governance: how conceptually derived, how measured The governance worldmap, & web interactivity What the Macro can and cannot do 15

16 Governance: A working definition Governance is the process and institutions by which authority in a country is exercised: (1) the process by which governments are selected, held accountable, monitored, and replaced; (2) the capacity of gov t to manage resources and provide services efficiently, and to formulate and implement sound policies and regulations; and, (3) the respect for the institutions that govern economic and social interactions among them 16

17 Operationalizing Governance: Unbundling its Definition into Components that can be measured, analyzed, and worked on Each of the 3 main components of Governance Definition is unbundled into 2 subcomponents: Democratic Voice and (External) Accountability Political Instability, Violence/Crime & Terror Regulatory Burden Government Effectiveness Corruption Rule of Law We measure these six governance components 17

22 Governance Improving Worldwide? -- Mixed On average, over the past 8 years: some progress on Voice and Democratic Accountability, but little if any on the quality of rule of law and control of corruption However, the variation across countries is very large: For instance, some countries in Eastern Europe have improved. In each region there is significant variation across countries. Good: Chile, Costa Rica, Botswana Important to unbundle governance and corruption: improvement in some dimensions, deterioration in others Where corruption is systemic, unrealistic to expect that Bank projects/lending could be totally immune 22

27 Defining, Measuring and Analyzing Legal Corruption Old, traditional definition of corruption: Abuse of public office for private gain Problems i) interpreted in terms of legality of act (illegal = corrupt; legal = non-corrupt?); ii) onus is on the public official (asymmetry), and, iii) measurement bias towards petty corruption Alternative: Privatization of public policy (e.g. undue influence by private interests on public policy actions ) This implies that some actions may be legal strictly speaking, but illegitimate, inconsistent with standards and/or corrupt These legal forms of corruption can be measured 27

EOS Question on which these calculations are based: In your industry, how commonly would you estimate that firms make undocumented extra payments or bribes connected with the following: public utilities, tax payments, awarding of public contracts? very common (1) / never occur (7). Any firms reporting answers 1 through 5 were considered to be reporting at least some frequency of bribery, while answers of 6 and 7 were not. 29

40 Data for Analysis and informing Policy Advise, not for Precise Rankings Data in this presentation is from aggregate governance indicators, surveys, and expert polls and is subject to a margin of error. It is not intended for precise comparative rankings across countries, but to illustrate performance measures to assist in drawing implications for strategy. It does not reflect official views on rankings by the World Bank or its Board of Directors.
