Abstract: This paper is based on the notion that competitiveness has a significant role to play in the development of small states, particularly in the current wave of globalisation. In a globalised free trade context, competitiveness is the means for firms as well as for countries to survive and thrive. This is because the alternative to competitiveness, namely protection from competition, has time and again proved to be futile, as it results in inefficiencies and poor returns. It is only through enhanced competitiveness that living standards can be maintained and upgraded over time.
