Manufacturing for Growth : A World Economic Forum Report in collaboration with Deloitte
In today’s global economy, government actions and public policy play a critical role in shaping the competitiveness of both nations and the individual companies that operate within their borders. The impact that government policies can have across a number of competitiveness drivers – including trade; financial, monetary, tax and legal systems; infrastructure; education; labour markets; and science and technology – are significant. They can directly create both advantages and disadvantages relative to other nations. As the strategic use of public policy intensifies, collaboration between policy-makers and business leaders to create win-win outcomes becomes more essential.
In Davos in January 2012, business leaders gathered to review and discuss the output of The Future of Manufacturing project, which focused on the question: How are global value chains evolving? The follow-up Manufacturing for Growth initiative focuses on the key question: What should be done? The objective of the Manufacturing for Growth initiative is to foster constructive dialogue and collaboration between business leaders and public policy-makers and, therefore, to facilitate better public policy.
The Manufacturing for Growth series addresses these key competitive factors and comprises of three volumes:
- Volume 1 (Globally Competitive Policy) focuses on 6 countries to define features of an effective national industrial policy.
- Volume 2 (Partnering for Competitiveness) examines case studies of public-private collaboration from around the world.
- Volume 3 (Manufacturing Value Chains Driving Growth) illustrates the value and jobs created by specific industry sectors—aerospace, automotive, and chemicals.
