Qatar will make its first appearance in the IMD World Competitiveness Yearbook 2009.

The report will identify strengths and weakness in Qatar’s economy in terms of its competitiveness compared with 58 other nations, mostly developed economies. The information will help Qatar to tackle areas where competitiveness can be improved. It will also serve as an important source of information for prospective investors and others.

The General Secretariat for Development Planning (GSDP) will conduct an Executive Opinion Survey in cooperation with Qatar Statistical Authority (QSA) and the International Institute for Management Development (IMD).

The survey will poll executive opinions on elements of economic policy, regulatory and operating environment that influence country competitiveness. The results of the survey will reflect the results and ranking of Qatar in the World Competitiveness Yearbook.

The report aims to evaluate the performance of Qatar’s economy and to show the extent to which government policies are contributing to competitiveness. It will illustrate the extent to which the national environment encourages enterprises to perform in an innovative, profitable and responsible manner. In addition it will shed more light on the basic, technological, scientific and human resource needs in business.

Qatar will join the international report fort the first time and follow the other GCC counties such as Saudi-Arabia, Oman and United Arab Emirates in June, when the World Competitiveness Yearbook 2009 will be launched.
