Annales Universitatis Apulensis Series Oeconomica, 2008, vol. 2, issue 10, 1
The paper analyses Romania's competitiveness and knowledge-based economy in an EU comparative context for the 2006-2007 period. The main compared pillar-indices are the following: global competitiveness index; higher education and training; technological readiness; business sophistication; innovation. Each pillar index is disaggregated into several relevant sub indices. Comparisons are made between Romania and EU-25, EU-10 (new member states since 2004), Bulgaria and Turkey on the basis of positions and scores of each country or group of countries, within a total framework of 131 countries. The size of Romania's â€œdigital divideâ€ vis-Ã -vis EU-25 can be used as a tool for national priority setting and better policies regarding catching up and convergence processes in digital economy.
Keywords: competitiveness; knowledge-based society; national and international value chains; catching-up; convergence; digital divide; brain drain; knowledge creation, absorption and diffusion. (search for similar items in EconPapers)
