In global competitiveness, Switzerland, for the fourth consecutive year, tops the overall rankings in The Global Competitiveness Report 2012-2013, released today by the World Economic Forum. Singapore remains in second position and Finland in third position, overtaking Sweden (4th). These and other Northern and Western European countries dominate the top 10 with the Netherlands (5th), Germany (6th) and United Kingdom (8th). The United States (7th), Hong Kong (9th) and Japan (10th) complete the ranking of the top 10 most competitive economies. Singapore still remains as a thriving and highly effecient society with thriving economy as it places 2nd amongst the top 10 countries in terms of performance in the global market. Singapore is amongst the pinnacle of countries in terms of its economy and has surpassed many other countries and is able to compete in a global outlook. Hence, is Singapore able to maintain its high position amongst the other countries in global competitiveness of economy? What factors contribute to Singapore's highly effecient economy, causing it to be of such high ranking amongst global competitiveness?

This article shows the rankings of countries economic status. In this article, we can see that Singapore is also listed in the top 10 in the ranking list. This thus shows that Singapore is quite competitive and is doing quite well in the global community.

From the article we can see that Singapore is economically competant on a global scale and more productive than her most of her neighbours. As we can see, Singapore has managed to maintain 2nd place on the ranking list which is a great acheivement. This article makes me think that Singapore must definitely be a role model in the global community and also a great influential country considering it being ranked so high on the list. The article also makes me wonder how hard our goverment have worked to get Singapore to where she is today.

SWITZERLAND tops the latest global competitiveness ranking of 144 countries by the World Economic Forum, best known for its annual shindig in Davos (a Swiss ski resort). It is closely followed by Singapore, while Finland has replaced Sweden in third place. That may be some comfort to the Finns, whose economy is lagging while Sweden’s is thriving.

Finland improves its ranking in IMD competitiveness comparison

The Swiss-based Institute for Management Development has announced the data from its 2011 World Competitiveness Yearbook, which places Finland slightly higher than last year.
The improvement in the ranking can mainly be explained by Finland’s recovery from the 2009 financial crisis, comments Research Director Petri Rouvinen from the Research Institute of the Finnish Economy.

According to the findings, Finland has jumped to 15th place, climbing four rungs from the 19th position it held last year.
Last year Finland lost ten places as a result of the recession.
