The Global Competitiveness Report (GCR) series continues to provide the world’s most respected assessment of national competitiveness, for more than three decades. The GCR presents rankings of the Global Competitiveness Index (GCI), introduced in 2005. The GCI is based on 12 pillars of competitiveness, providing a comprehensive picture of the competitiveness landscape in 144 countries in the world which are at different stages of economic development. The ranking shows the productive potential of nations and is widely used in foreign and domestic investments decisions. Sri Lanka was first included from year 2000 and was included for the fourteenth consecutive year in the 2014 report. The study is in the form of an Executive Opinion Survey among business leaders who are able to provide information and bring to light competitive issues that are important for the country, which are not available in other published sources.
