The annual Global Competitiveness Report is widely recognized as the world's leading cross-country comparison of data and information relating to economic competitiveness and growth. Over the years, the Report has become the most authoritative and comprehensive assessment of the comparative strengths and weaknesses of national economies throughout the world.

The World Economic Forum continues its tradition of excellence with The Global Competitiveness Report 2003-2004, provides an authoritative and thorough assessment of the comparative strengths and weaknesses of 102 industrialized and emerging economies.
Global Competitiveness Report 2002-2003

The 2003-2004 Report is even more comprehensive than the previous Reports, with the inclusion of several African economies. Data tables have been expanded to incorporate new survey questions on human resource indicators such as health and education as well as new sets of questions on trade, labour policy, and corporate governance. Over 7,300 business leaders worldwide participated in the Executive Opinion Survey, which captures the perceptions and observations of business leaders operating in a given country.

The Report consists of three main parts: the first consists of analytical chapters related to competitiveness; the second contains country profiles, while the third part consists of the data tables which contains country rankings for every indicator. Written in a non-technical language and style, the Report appeals to a broad audience consisting of policy makers, business leaders and academics. In the tradition of the Global Competitiveness Programme of the World Economic Forum, the Report brings together a range of leading experts in the field: Academic experts, industry consultants, industry leaders and representatives of multilateral organizations.
