The Cities and Municipalities Competitiveness Index measures the competitiveness of cities and municipalities based on three main pillars: economic dynamism, government efficiency and infrastructure.

The Index can be used as a diagnostic tool by local government officials to assess the competitiveness of their city or municipality and identify areas for improvement and collaboration.

Data can provide insight for policy making, development planning and investment promotion.
