Abstract

A Comparison of Northern Ireland's Productivity and Efficiency across Services and Manufacturing is the first of four reports produced by the study on Productivity, Innovation and Competitiveness in Small Open Economies (PIC SOE). The PIC SOE project is a research study commissioned by the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Investment (DETI) in 2009 to investigate approaches and strategies for advancing productivity, innovation and competitiveness in the three leading small open economies of Singapore, New Zealand, and the Republic of Ireland so as to draw insights for Northern Ireland.

The PIC SOE project is undertaking economic performance, industry, and policy analyses of these small open economies and of key sectors within them, including emerging technology industries, chemicals, processed food, and advanced services. Three technical reports are being delivered: 1. A Comparison of Northern Ireland's Productivity and Efficiency across Services and Manufacturing (this report); 2. Mapping Organizational Capabilities for Innovation and Competitiveness: Research Performance and Patenting in Small Open Economies; and 3. Competitiveness and Innovation Profiles of Three Small Open Economies: New Zealand, Singapore, and Republic of Ireland. A final report, Productivity, Innovation and Competitiveness in Small Open Economies, will provide an overview of the findings of these earlier reports and assesses the applicability, comparability, and significance of the findings for policy development in Northern Ireland to support the region's prosperity, innovativeness, and industrial productivity.

The PIC SOE study team comprises: Dr. Adrian T.H. Kuah (University of Bradford, UK); Prof. Philip Shapira (Manchester Institute of Innovation Research, Manchester Business School, University of Manchester, UK); Dr. Eleanor Doyle (Institute for Business Development and Competitiveness, Department of Economics, University College Cork, Republic of Ireland); and Dr. Damian R. Ward (University of Bradford, UK). Additional research assistance is provided by Lasandahasi Ranmuthumalie de Silva, Fergal O'Connor, Gary Marsh and Luciano Kay.

This report examines the productivity and efficiency of leading firms in selected sectors relative to other firms and against international benchmarks. The report was written Damian Ward, Eleanor Doyle, Philip Shapira, and Adrian Kuah. Any opinions, findings, and recommendations expressed in this report are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of DETI. Some information and analyses included in this report have been updated prior to use in the PIC SOE final study report.
