Global Manufacturing Competitiveness Index 2013

Deloitte recently published an interesting report: the 2013 Global Manufacturing Competitiveness Report. The data are mainly derived from CEO’s from a variety of industries across the globe.

The report describes 10 ‘global drivers of manufacturing competitiveness’.
