According to the results of the Global Competitiveness Report for 2015-2016, Kazakhstan holds 42nd place among 140 countries in competitiveness, the best result in the history of Kazakhstan’s participation in the ranking, reported the National Analytical Centre under the government and the National Bank of Kazakhstan.


The Global Competitiveness Index was created for the World Economic Forum by Professor Xavier Sala-i-Martin and was published for the first time in 2004. The index is composed of 12 pillars of competitiveness that characterise in detail the competitiveness of countries at different levels of economic development.

The Global Competitiveness Reports assess the competitiveness landscape of 144 economies, providing insight into the drivers of their productivity and prosperity. The reports remain the most comprehensive assessment of national competitiveness worldwide, providing a platform for dialogue between government, business and civil society about the actions required to improve economic prosperity.
