How Competitiveness is Measured
There is no single and unanimously agreed upon measure of competitiveness. Several international organizations produce rankings along different dimensions of competitiveness. And while useful as a benchmark, competitiveness rankings can only provide a snapshot of a much larger and complex competitiveness canvas.
As a think tank and advisory body, the Federal Competitiveness and Statistics Authority, reviews and analyzes a number of international reports and rankings to gauge the country’s performance along its development agenda. FCSA also strives to ensure that the UAE’s performance is accurately captured and reflected, in keeping with international best practices.
