This report studies, how well suited the competitiveness reports by IMD and WEF are to support the conduct of economic policy in Finland. It is concluded that the reports, either as they are or in an enhanced form, do not meet Finnish policymakers’ information needs when it comes to components of competitiveness. The report also identifies seven key elements of national competitiveness tracking, sketches a preliminary version of a Finnish national competitiveness framework, and provides a numeric example of one element under the framework, namely business finance.
