Nurturing Growing Markets

The Global Competitiveness Index (GCI) is a key component of the Global Competitiveness Report (GCR), which is a comprehensive assessment of countries’ economic competitiveness. This is an annual report produced by the Global Competitiveness Network (GCN) of the World Economic Forum (WEF). The GCI is comprised of approximately 110 variables, which are further grouped into 12 pillars of competitiveness. These pillars are further subdivided into the three subindexes, namely “Basic Requirements”, “Efficiency Enhancers” and “Innovation and Sophistication factors”.

Global Competitiveness Ranking

The GCI captures information on the micro and macro-economic foundations of national competitiveness in over 148 countries and contributes to factor which influence economic growth in particular countries and helps to explain why some countries are more successful than others. The WEF has stated that the information released in the 2013-2014 report was set in a context in which growth has begun to slow across many emerging economies and advanced economies in Europe. It is imperative for leaders from business, government and civil society to work collaboratively to generate an enabling environment to foster innovation, and create appropriate educational systems.

Chairman’s Address

Welcome to the official website of the Council for Competitiveness and Innovation. The Council for Competitiveness and Innovation (CCI) was established by the Government of Trinidad and Tobago in early 2011 as an advisory board to the Ministry of Planning and Sustainable Development. It is currently charged with the responsibility of significantly improving our country’s global competitiveness as well as fostering innovation as key drivers of a diversified knowledge based economy. The Council is also assisting in developing and implementing a holistic and competitive innovation policy that will transform the economy of Trinidad and Tobago and improve its global competitiveness and innovation rank over the next ten years. Our mandate is guided by the Government’s seven pillars of sustainable development and the Medium Term Policy Framework (MTPF) 2011-2014.
