Description

Since 1979 the World Economic Forum, a foundation based in Geneva, has produced annual reports on the relative competitiveness of countries (the term "country" as used in this report covers well-defined, geographically eelf-contained areas that are not states but for which statistical data are maintained on a separate and independent basis), tracing the extraordinary development of the world economy during the last twenty years. The Global Competitiveness Report uses a research-based Competitiveness Index in which rankings of relevant economies are given on a multitude of business and economic factors. From its inception, the Report has furnished specific competitive information on the world's key economies, now presented with two page profiles for each economy. These profiles provide: major performance indicators;each economy's rank in competitivenss; and highlights of particular strengths and weaknesses. Each year the Report becomes an ever more refined analytical tool for exploring the exponential expansion of interconnections in our global economy. Data in the Global Competitiveness Report are recent. For instance, the 2000 Report includes 1999 data and will remain the best single source anywher on global competitiveness until the publication of the next report in mid 2001.show more
