The Global Competitiveness Report is an annual publication by the World Economic Forum (WEF). The report assesses institutions, policies, and other macro and microeconomic fundamentals that affect a country’s economic productivity and efficiency. The final index is a composite of twelve thematic areas: institutions, infrastructure, ICT adoption, macroeconomic stability, health, skills, product market, labour market, the financial system, market size, business dynamisms, and innovation capability.
The Institute of Policy Studies of Sri Lanka has been the local partner for the project since 2012. IPS provides its expertise through policy analysis and by facilitating an annual executive opinion survey that contributes towards the development of the index.
