High Value Added Economy and Competitiveness in Context of Globalization

The aim of the research is to identify EU low productivity countries opportunities to boost value-added and competitiveness in the process of globalization transformations.
Topicality and originality of the research:
Development of competitiveness of country or country group becomes more and more important in time of the growing economic integration and globalization. Productivity based on value-added is one of the most important indicator, which reflect local or national economic competitiveness. We can observe the gaps in the value-added across the EU countries. Hence it is necessary to look for opportunities to increase productivity in low value-added counties. To achieve this goal we together solving the following research problems: we modify productivity theory by adapting at globalization context; we developing methodology for developing heterogeneous productivity strategies assuming simultaneous factor impact on increasing value-added in the globalization process.

The investigation utilizes the following methods of the literature analysis:
  • structuring of concepts, the research propositions and findings;
  • the comparative analysis;
  • the interpretation;
  • identification of the definitions and development of the hypotheses.
The empirical part of investigations uses:
  • descriptive statistics, hypothesizes causal relationships between variables;
  • the country clustering analysis and partitions the countries into groups according value added.
It also uses OLS, fixed and random effects regression analysis to find out the relationship between the variables.
The analysis of productivity (based on value-added), competitiveness and globalization paradigms allow to revision that concepts.
The analysis of genesis of the productivity theories allow to determine factors influencing value-added in theoretical level and adjust endogenous productivity theory to the globalization context. Investigations allows to identify productivity sources of the highest return in the clusters of the countries with various value-added and globalization levels. It also ensures development of the strategies for the economics and competitiveness growth.
