  • developing policy guidelines and recommendations
  • monitoring progress in the implementation of competitiveness reforms.

Peer Review Reports

The peer review reports are forward-looking and recommend policy responses to specific competitiveness challenges facing the countries under review. The reports are discussed at the Roundtable and launched in the country to give visibility to the policy findings and recommendations. The country is re-examined three years after its initial review in order to assess progress in the implementation of the recommendations and to consider further steps that might be taken.
