The World Forum annually publishes a Global Competitiveness Report that ranks the most competitive countries. Since 2008 Switzerland ranks first, after the United States lost first place. Currently, the USA holds fourth place, after Switzerland, Sweden, and Singapore.

The GCI (Global Competitiveness Index) is based on 12 pillars that provide a visual representation of the current international competitiveness state of different countries, disregarding their stage of development. These pillars are: institutions, infrastructures, macroeconomic framework, health and primary education, efficient goods markets, efficient labor markets, developed financial markets, technology, market size, business and innovation.
