provincial competitiveness index

AmCham supports Vietnam’s Provincial Competitiveness Index (PCI) – now in its 19th year – which conducts an annual business survey, assessment and ranking of the ease of doing business, quality of economic governance, and the results of administrative reform efforts by local governments to promote private sector development.

Based on a rigorous survey of the perceptions of domestic and foreign firms, the PCI report amplifies the collective voice of private entrepreneurs in Vietnam regarding economic governance in provinces where they invest and in the country as a whole. The PCI remains a reliable and useful tool that informs policy making at all levels, spreads administrative reforms across provinces, and promotes business environment reforms while providing a reference for investors’ decisions. By exploring firms’ perceptions and experiences in provinces where they operate, the PCI can identify gaps between policy intent and implementation on ground, motivating action to gradually bridge these gaps.

Last year, Quang Ninh Province had the highest ranking for the sixth year in a row. Who will be on top this year? Find out at this year’s PCI launch on Thursday morning. There is no cost to attend this event but seating is very limited. Please register your participation by clicking on the button below or by calling the AmCham office (84) 24 3934 2790.
