    World Competitiveness Yearbook 2012:

    [​IMG]

    The most competitive nations in Europe are Switzerland (3), Sweden (5) and Germany (9), which have export-oriented manufacturing and fiscal discipline. Meanwhile, Ireland (20), Iceland (26) and Italy (40) look better equipped to bounce back than Spain (39), Portugal (41) and Greece (58), which continue to scare investors.

    Emerging economies are not yet immune to turmoil elsewhere. China (23), India (35) and Brazil (46) have all slipped in the rankings, Russia (18) climbed only one place. All Asian economies have declined apart from Hong Kong (1), Malaysia (14) and Korea (22). Latin America also had a tough year, with every nation falling except Mexico (37).

    Futron Releases 2012 Space Competitiveness Index

    Futron has released its 2012 Space Competitiveness Index marking the 5th anniversary of the yearly publication. According to the report, the United States remains the overall leader in space competitiveness but is seeing a decline for the 5th year in a row.

    The decline is attributed to enhanced capabilities in other countries while the U.S. is undergoing a transition with "significant" uncertainty.

    New to the index this year are emerging space nations Argentina, Australia, Iran, South Africa and the Ukraine.

    Four distinct tiers have emerged. The first tier has the U.S., Europe, and Russia. The second tier China, Japan, India, and Canada. The third tier South Korea, Israel, and Brazil. And the fourth tier Argentina, Australia, Iran, South Africa and the Ukraine.

    Futron says the top two tiers remain dynamic but have shown some stabilization while the bottom two tiers are subject to intense competition, with very small gaps in the competitive rankings.

    China gained the most competitiveness basis points in 2012, followed by Europe, India, and Israel. Japan lost the most basis points, followed by Canada, South Korea, and the United States. When compared against the larger group of 15 nations, Brazil falls to 11th place, just below Australia.

    As has been noted before International collaboration is increasingly taking shape as a concerted space competitiveness strategy, especially among smaller actors.

    Here's a list of some of the findings by country:

    - Argentina is adapting its satellite manufacturing sector for the international marketplace, exploring both commercial and government-to-government deals. It stands to benefit from increased investment in spacecraft subcomponents.

    - After more than a decade of dormancy, Australia is back. The government is refreshing its national space policy segment-by-segment, focusing on space not only a driver of innovation and expertise, but also for its benefits to Australian society.

    - Brazil has begun to re-examine its national space priorities, increased funding, expanded its partnerships, and laid plans for a new launch vehicle. It remains to be seen whether these steps will keep Brazil ahead of regional counterparts that are also emerging onto the space scene.

    - Canada retains a skilled space workforce, but delays in space policy refresh and implementation are significantly offsetting these competitive advantages.

    - China performed a record number of launches in 2012, surpassing the United States for the first time, while increasing investment in technical education programs and civilian research institutes.

    - Europe's integrated approach is complemented by the rise of new national space agencies across the continent--from the United Kingdom to the Czech Republic to Estonia--as well as more assertive space export financing.

    [​IMG]

    - India is enhancing its space-related technical education, while gradually progressing toward a completely self-reliant set of next generation launch vehicles.

    - Iran has made faster progress than any other newly emergent space nation. The tenor of Iran's space program--civilian or military--will hinge on geopolitics. Other international actors have substantial power to influence the future focus of the Iranian space program.

    - Israel, despite funding increases, remains challenged by its lack of domestic industry scale, and has difficulty sustaining a commercial space presence in global markets.

    - Japan, despite ongoing benefits from its policy reforms, is losing competitive ground relative to most other actors, and can benefit from a greater focus on commercializing its industrial base.

    - Russia's remains the world's launch leader, and promises to retain that role in the near term thanks to its vital role in transporting astronauts and cargo to the International Space Station, as well as the introduction of Soyuz launches from the European spaceport at Kourou. These strengths, however, are offset by weaknesses in retention of human capital talent.

    - South Africa is divided, from a budgetary standpoint, between space investments focused on societal usage of external assets already in space and investments focused on building the country's own space industrial base.

    - South Korea's two failed launch attempts contributed to an organizational shakeup, but have not reduced its determination to become the newest country to achieve independent spaceflight.

    - Ukraine has an enviable space industrial base, but limited domestic demand for its space hardware. It is aggressively seeking partners overseas, but has not yet engaged with key emerging markets.

    2013 Global Manufacturing Competitiveness Index
    November 16, 2012

    The U.S., the world’s largest economy, will slip to fifth place from third in manufacturing competitiveness in the next five years as India and Brazil race ahead, according to a report.

    China will remain in the top spot while India rises to second from fourth and Brazil jumps from eighth to third, according to the 2013 Global Manufacturing Competitiveness Index compiled by Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu and the U.S. Council on Competitiveness. The index, which was first introduced in 2010, reflects perceptions of more than 550 senior corporate leaders surveyed about how 38 countries rank currently and will fare in five years.

    Executives said access to talented workers is the top indicator of competitiveness, followed by a country’s trade, financial and tax policies, according to the report, which was to be published today.

    “From a U.S. perspective we didn’t change that much, but it’s just that others are moving rapidly,” Samuel Allen, chairman and chief executive officer of Deere & Co. (DE) and chairman of the council, said in a telephone interview. “We can’t tread water whether it be in education, tax reform or continued investment in infrastructure.”

    The current and future rankings reinforce the perception that the U.S. is “living off of investments we made a long time ago,” Allen said. He said he worries about factors such as deteriorating U.S. infrastructure that may increase costs to move goods, and energy policies that could boost fuel prices.

    ‘Continued Deterioration’

    While Deere, the world’s largest (DE) maker of farm equipment, has factories around the world, it still has invested about 57 percent of its capital in the U.S. in the last five years, Allen said. The Moline, Illinois-based manufacturer generated 61 percent of its revenue (DE) in the U.S. and Canada last year, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

    “What you worry about is the continued deterioration of the critical success factors to manufacture here,” Allen said.

    The U.S. still can improve its competitiveness by reforming its tax structure and controlling its debt, Allen said.

    According to the report, Germany will move from second to fourth in the competitiveness ranking, South Korea will fall from fifth to sixth, Taiwan will go from sixth to seventh, Canada will drop from seventh to eighth, and Japan falls out of the top 10 list altogether, tumbling from 10th to 12th. Vietnam, meanwhile, will jump from 18th to 10th and Singapore will maintain its No. 9 ranking.

    ‘Sobering’ Findings

    Another “sobering” finding in the report is that in five years Germany will be the only European country in the top 15 spots for manufacturing competitiveness, as the U.K. and Poland slide, Allen said.

    The world is seeing a “power shift” of competitiveness toward developing countries, particularly those in Asia, said Deborah L. Wince-Smith, CEO of the Washington-based council that includes business, academic and labor leaders.

    China and other emerging countries are increasingly manufacturing advanced goods, said Craig Giffi, the U.S. consumer and industrial products industry leader at Deloitte who co-authored the report.

    While emerging manufacturing powers still face challenges in improving their infrastructure, supplier networks and legal systems, the countries are investing to drive growth and jobs, according to the report.

    “We are at an inflection point,” Giffi said. “For developed nations, it’s going to get harder.”

    Aside from the responses of top executives, the study was based on interviews with “key manufacturing players” and contributors from Deloitte, the council, the Indian Institute of Management in Lucknow, and Clemson University in South Carolina, according to the report.

    Luxury carmaker does profit U-turn

    [​IMG]
    The Range Rover Evoque is the latest in the luxury brand's line-up, and goes on sale in Australia later this year.

    In one of the greatest industrial turnarounds in British corporate history, Jaguar Land Rover, the luxury carmaker so troubled during the depths of the recession that there were fears it could go bankrupt, has reported a profit of more than £1 billion ($1.54bn). :truestory:

    Tata, the Indian parent of the British manufacturer, reported that JLR made a profit after tax of £1.043 billion ($1.6 billion) in the financial year to March 31, compared to £32 million ($49.3 million) the previous year. :india:

    The rebirth of the carmaker comes courtesy of the strong overseas demand for Jaguars, Range Rovers and Land Rovers which has made the company one of the UK's most important exporters.

    Last year, more than 77 percent of JLR's output of about 240,000 cars were bound for shipment, with China for instance now making up a fast-expanding 10 per cent of its market.

    JLR is also Britain's single largest automotive employer, with nearly 20,000 staff.

    Carl-Peter Forster, chief executive of Tata Motors, the Indian company which bought JLR from Ford for €2.3 billion ($3 billion), said, "Jaguar Land Rover is now a strong, profitable and innovative competitor in the premium car industry and will deliver even more attractive models and technologies to customers worldwide."

    The new baby Range Rover, the Evoque, is being launched in the US this northern summer and the company has also committed to the construction of a limited edition hybrid electric-powered supercar, the Jaguar C-X75.
