Additional Approaches to Assess the Vietnam Provincial Competitiveness Index (PCI)

  •  Diep Thanh Tung    


To supply an additional approach to the current PCI rank, this study promotes a new rank based on technical
efficiency scores. Components of PCI are used as inputs to produce outputs which are business indicators. While
technical efficiency and PCI ranks are supplements for each other in annual assessments, the Malmquist index
and its compositions may be long-term indicators to reflect the performance improvement of the local
governments to attract investments.
