The article discusses how countries around the world are adopting the concept of a one-stop shop for business start up. It describes a one-stop shop as an organization which managed business registrations and implies that while some countries perform well without a one-stop shop, other countries are unsuccessful despite having one. According to the author, venturing on a one-stop shop start up requires analysis and rationalization of procedures. It suggests that the key feature is establishing what customers want and need, in addition to consultation with the private sector. Countries which practiced the one-stop shop and their result depending on the manner of implementation are also explored.
