IMD World Competitiveness Rankings 2019 Results
In the highly interconnected and rapidly changing world, economies are affected by issues ranging from reservations over globalization to skepticism over automation, from the challenge of sustainability to that of implementation. Not all economies approach these problems in the same way.
Competitiveness provides the framework to quantify the outcome of dealing with these challenges from a country perspective. Ultimately, it allows us to recognize the factors that facilitate prosperity. And this is how we expect our rankings to be used and interpreted: competitiveness is both a tool and an objective of economic policy.
