National Council of Competitiveness
- Type of agent:
- National ministry or development agency
The National Competitiveness Council (NCC) of the Dominican Republic is a public institution with a mixed (private-public) board presided by the president of the country, which leads and coordinates national public policy on competitiveness and clusters. CNC promotes clusters in tourism, agro industry and other industrial sectors (such as construction, furniture, etc.), and also works towards improving the business climate in the Dominican Republic to enhance competitiveness (through institutional and legal reforms, public-private partnerships, and other).
The modus operandi of the NCC is the permanent linkage of the main agents nationwide, through meetings, dialogues, promotion of consensus, and seeking out conflicts that hinder national competitiveness. Also emphasizes in the adequacy and modernization of the legal framework that regulates the national productive sectors, in order to remove barriers to competitiveness. The private sector is an essential agent in the whole implementation process of the National Plan of Systemic Competitiveness, so the NCC takes into account each of their performances. The 23 clusters in the country so far are a perfect example of the importance of integrating the private sector for the NCC, in the process of implementing the Plan.
