En cette époque de concurrence exacerbée et même de ce que l’on peut même qualifier de guerre économique, pourquoi la Suisse ne bomberait-elle pas le torse et n’arborerait-elle pas fièrement son statut de championne du monde de l’innovation et de la compétitivité.
En effet, et si vous l’avez malheureusement manqué, la Suisse se place en 2013 sur la plus haute marche de deux classements internationaux, et pas les moindres, que sont:
- le Global Competitiveness Report 2013-2014 publié par World Economic Forum et
- le Global Innovation Index 2013 du World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO)
La Suisse championne du monde de la compétitivité
The Survey results are used in the calculation of the Global Competitiveness Index (GCI) and other Forum indexes, including the Networked Readiness Index, the Enabling Trade Index, the Travel & Tourism Competitiveness Index, the Financial Development Index, and the Gender Gap Index, as well as in regional studies.1 A truly unique source of information, the Survey data have also long served a number of international and national organizations, government bodies, and academia as well as the private sector to inform policy work, strategies, and investment decisions.
La Suisse championne du monde de l’innovation
The United States rejoined the five most-innovative nations and the United Kingdom moved up to the third spot while Switzerland retained its place atop the rankings in the Global Innovation Index 2013, published by Cornell University, INSEAD, and the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO).
The GII 2013 looked at 142 economies around the world, using 84 indicators including the quality of top universities, availability of microfinance, venture capital deals – gauging both innovation capabilities and measurable results. Published annually since 2007, the GII has become a chief benchmarking tool for business executives, policy makers and others seeking insight into the state of innovation around the world. This year's study benefits from the experience of its Knowledge Partners: Booz & Company, the Confederation of Indian Industry, du and Huawei, as well as of an advisory board of 14 international experts. United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon joined the authors of the report and its Knowledge Partners in presenting the GII 2013 findings at the High-Level Segment of the United Nation's Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC). The High Level Segment, held July 1-4 in Geneva, brings together heads of state, ministers and heads of international agencies, this year focusing in particular on the role of science, technology and innovation and the potential of culture in achieving the Millennium Development Goals and promoting sustainable development.
