MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: The aim in this paper is constructs an index of competitiveness for the provinces (PCI) in Ecuador. The CPI measures the structural and institutional conditions that cause the provinces competitiveness. This index can be used as an indicator larger than the rate of growth of GDP or per capita income to measure the productive capacity of the provinces and the standard of living of its inhabitants. Factors included are economic, human capital, geography, infrastructure, institutions and markets. The factors indicate the ability to leverage resources and create conditions for development more efficiently than their peers. The results obtained show that the most competitive provinces are those with greater economic concentration, less competitive and those with low economic concentration.
