- Several reports on national competitiveness already exists, but they are not satisfactory. This paper corrects the problems of the existing reports and suggests new methodologies of explaining national competitiveness. When comparing national competitiveness, nations should be grouped with regard to similarities in terms of economic scale and structure. For this purpose, this paper introduces 3x3 typology of country groups in terms of the nation's size and competitiveness. In addition, this paper applies the classical generic strategies to the national level. Combining these two analytical frameworks, this paper demonstrates several useful policy implications for different levels of national competitiveness.
