The European Union defines competitiveness as the capacity of a nation to improve the standard of living of its people in a sustainable manner and obtain a high level of employment and social cohesion in a high quality environment. It can be judged on the basis of the capacity of a territory to maintain and attract business and the ability of businesses to take on their competitors.
