Costa Rica Global Competitiveness Rankings
The World Economic Forum released its 2012-2013 Global Competitiveness Report. The World Economic Forum describes itself as an independent international organization which is committed to improving the condition of the world. Its members “represent the 1,000 leading companies and 200 smaller businesses – many from the developing world – that play a potent role in their industry or region.”
For those of us that live in Costa Rica the findings as it relates to infrastructure comes as no surprise. Costa Rica ranks at the bottom of the list 95/144 for overall infrastructure next to countries such as Montenegro, Cape Verde, Dominican Republic and Honduras. Government after government has failed to address and invest in road and port infrastructure for years and the result is quite evident in Costa Rica.
When it comes to the quality of the roads in Costa Rica we rank 131/144 right along countries like Madagascar and the Kyrgyz Republic.
