Countries with Decreasing Ratios from Survey I to IV

Over-reliance on state-owned banks can crowd out private lending discipline and jeopardize public fiscal restraint. Since 2000, many developing countries say state-owned banks are playing a smaller role.

Note: I and IV refer to the World Bank's Bank Regulation and Supervision Survey I (1999) and Survey IV (2011). I-IV refers to a decrease in the value of the index from 1999-2011.
