Business environment is a determining factor of a country's institutional competitiveness. Once a year, the World Banks publishes the ease of doing business index measuring the impact of major legal and institutional reforms on a business throughout its life cycle. The UN Human Development Report 2010 is in many ways crucial in terms of advancing the measuring of well-being. At its twentieth anniversary, the report presents results of long-term trends since 1970, pointing out that though a prerequisite for it, economic growth does not necessarily translate into a higher level of social well-being. Ensuring food safety is becoming a global and national priority of the agricultural policy and an important social issue. After several decades of exceptionally last growth, global agricultural production can be expected to slow due to limited natural resources and climate changes.
