      The Investing Across Borders (IAB) indicators assess laws, regulations, and practices that affect foreign direct investment (FDI). The project’s methodology is based on that of the World Bank Group’s Doing Business project. The indicators highlight differences among countries in their regulatory treatment of FDI to identify good practices, facilitate learning opportunities, stimulate reforms, and provide annual cross-country data for research and analysis. The indicators are based on a survey of lawyers, professional service providers (mainly accounting and consulting firms), investment promotion institutions, chambers of commerce, law professors, and other expert respondents in the countries covered. For the IAB 2010 report, more than 2,350 respondents were surveyed in 87 economies (27 per country, on average) between April and December 2009. List of all respondents is available under the local partners.
