TÜRKONFED, in cooperation with Center for Economic and Foreign Policy Studies (EDAM) launched the "Provincial Competitiveness Index" Report at an event in Adana.
The report takes a look at regional competitiveness, by means of analyzing productivity levels of firms in specific geographical locations with the aim of depicting a particular region's ability to attract and sustain investments, as well as providing higher living standards. When used in explaining dissimilar production structures and income levels, the competitiveness indices give the opportunity to make regionally diferentiating policies. Based on the findings of the report, Istanbul, Ankara and Izmir are the most competitive among the Turkish cities; whereas Şanlıurfa, Muş and Şırnak were ranked the lowest.
