An international think tank dedicated to conducting meaningful research in the core fields of strategy, economic development, productivity and prosperity in order to create value for all, the Institute for Competitiveness (IFC) works to put together a body of knowledge that encompasses economic distribution, business environments, distribution of wealth and enhancing productivity.
IFC studies competition and its implications for company strategy, the competitiveness of nations, regions and cities, and thus generates guidelines for businesses and those in governance. The institute’s expertise lies in understanding location strategies for companies, and studying how regions can create a sustainable environment for doing business, while enhancing productivity and income levels of people.
The institute’s core activities revolve around disseminating ideas to various bodies, including companies and governments, through events, publications and programs.
IFC works with the two-fold objective of offering neutral data and analysis on competitiveness, and to make competitiveness a standard concept and tool on a global basis.
