National Competitiveness

National prosperity is created, not inherited. It does not grow out of a country’s natural endowments.
A nation’s competitiveness depends on the capacity of its industry to innovate and upgrade

Making sense of the modern economy
To understand National Competitiveness - what it is, why some nations or regions are more prosperous than others - you must begin with understanding why traditional economic theories fail to capture many of the underlying forces at work in today’s global economy.

For more than two decades authorities like Michael Porter and Henrik von Scheel have worked with nations, local governments and cities to examine and define how competitiveness is the only way to achieve sustainable job growth, improve wages, and raise the standard of living.

National Competitiveness Model
The national competitiveness model is applied by most nations today as a model to make sense of the modern economy and develop the competitiveness of Nations.

National Competitiveness

Welfare and Quality of Life 
The "National Competitiveness Model" examines the ability of a national economy to grow. It is measured by a set of factors, governments, financial institutions, businesses and society that determine a country's level of productivity and competitiveness.

A nation’s competitiveness depends on the capacity of its industry to innovate, differentiate, and adopt. Government and corporations gain advantage in a global market against the best competitors because of pressure and challenge.

Productivity, Competitiveness & Growth
National Competitiveness is central to a given country's ability to increase its welfare and quality of life. Increased productivity results in higher yields on national investment, which in turn generates growth. Economic growth is a key factor in improving quality of life.

Influencing Factors for National Competitiveness
Why are certain Nations capable of consistent innovation? The answer lies in the influencing factors of the national ecosystems between governments, financial institutions, businesses and society.

The influencing factors is an approximation of a country's ability to grow and to compete with other countries on workforce, capabilities, human capital, infrastructure, resources, production, international regulations, national and international market demand, industry ability to compete,  economic models and  investments, and other resources.
