Moreover, substantial deficiencies in the transport and utilities network pose severe obstacles to business operations and the effective functioning of supply chains, raising operational costs. ...As noted by our Operational Risk team, investors seeking to enter the market are held back by obstacles including an underdeveloped banking sector - making it difficult to raise financing for projects in-country - alongside high levels of red tape and low levels of skilled labour, which weigh on the timely completion of projects and raise business costs.
