The Global Competitiveness Index was created for the World Economic Forum by Professor Xavier Sala-i-Martin and was published for the first time in 2004. The index is composed of 12 pillars of competitiveness that characterise in detail the competitiveness of countries at different levels of economic development.
The Global Competitiveness Reports assess the competitiveness landscape of 144 economies, providing insight into the drivers of their productivity and prosperity. The reports remain the most comprehensive assessment of national competitiveness worldwide, providing a platform for dialogue between government, business and civil society about the actions required to improve economic prosperity.
