On 24 January 2006 President Antonio Saca announced the launch of the new one-stop shop at the Commercial Registry, combining 8 startup procedures into 1. Starting a business, which took 115 days before reform, now took only 26. The next day the vice president cut the ribbon at the business registry site. Things were going well, thanks to a 4-year effort. “Everything can be done in 1 place now,” says Felix Safie, director of the National Central Registry.
