The National Competitiveness Report of Armenia has its distinct role in the array of independent professional analyses dedicated to the key development issues of the Armenian economy.
Competitiveness is a multifactor phenomenon and its analysis requires application of specific methodological approaches, together with a comprehensive benchmarking with international practices. The approach applied in the report allows assessing Armenia’s stance in the regional and global context, identifying the success factors and underlying reasons for significant drawbacks, as well as identifying the strategic options for economic policy.

For over three decades, the World Economic Forum has striven to provide an accurate assessment of national competitiveness through its research and publications. A national competitiveness report such as the Armenia Competitiveness Report produced and published by the Economy and Values Research Centre is an important step in this undertaking, highlighting both the strengths that Armenia must build upon and the weaknesses to be addressed in order to achieve higher levels of prosperity. The World Economic Forum's Centre for Global Competitiveness and Performance supports such an endeavour as it will provide the business and public sectors alike with an important and useful benchmarking tool to advance the issue in Armenia.
