Variables for Sustainable Growth

Ahead of the World Economic Forum at Davos, KPMG has launched its inaugural Variables for Sustained Growth (VSG) Index.  Developed to assess countries’ long-term economic performance prospects, the index measures countries’ productivity potential to illustrate where governments should be focusing their efforts.

The index considers 21 areas which can have a significant impact on a country’s future economic growth and wealth, such as transport infrastructure; education and the strength of public institutions.

Key highlights

  • The top performers in this year’s index are dominated by Western Europe, with Singapore, New Zealand, and Hong Kong the only non-European countries to make it to the top 10. 
  • The UK made it into the top 20, but lags behind the likes of Luxembourg, which came top, Ireland (ranked 10th) and Germany (ranked 12th).
