    Abstract Recent policy guidelines and conceptual literature have been suggesting electronic government (e-gov) and ICT based solutions as a way to decrease the administrative and regulatory burdens on business. We use data from the World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business reports and the United Nations’ E-Gov Surveys to study the relationship between e-gov and the ease of doing business in a panel with more than 160 countries. Results suggest that e-gov may positively influence six business areas: Starting a Business, Getting Electricity, Registering Property, Getting Credit, Trading Across Borders and Protecting Minority Investors. Our research intends to quantify the relationship between these two topics and to contribute towards the definition of e-gov policies that can benefit business.
