Ease of doing business in Eritrea

Eritrea has been ranked 189th out of 190 countries in the World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business Index for 2020, which, at first glance, might seem discouraging. However, what this ranking really underscores is the potential for early adopters to tap into a largely unexplored market. 

Partnering with an EOR like Breedj mitigates the risks associated with navigating Eritrea’s intricate regulatory landscape. Our team of experts, who are deeply ingrained in the local business ecosystem, provide ongoing advisory services to ensure that you are aware of all compliance requirements, thereby allowing you to make informed business decisions.

Hiring in Eritrea

When it comes to staffing your operations in Eritrea, businesses generally have two options. One is to establish a local entity, a process that can be laborious, time-consuming, and fraught with pitfalls related to non-compliance with Eritrean labor laws. The other, more efficient route is to enlist an EOR service like Breedj. 

With our services, you bypass the need to understand the nuances of local labor laws, hiring customs, and payroll intricacies. We take care of everything—from identifying the right talent and negotiating employment contracts to administering benefits and running payroll. This holistic approach ensures that you maintain compliance with all local regulations, freeing you to direct your focus on core business activities.
