If your Company is not Competitive ... It will Disappear

In the markets of the 21st century, characterized as increasingly global and competitive, only competitive companies will survive.

Wednesday, August 8, 2012

An article in Capital.com.pa by Darsy Santamaría Vega reports that "Darwinism is perfectly applicable to the business world: Only the strongest and most able to adapt to change, will evolve and survive."

Factors that limit the competitiveness of enterprises, says Santamaria Vega are "restrictions, monopolies and oligopolies in the Panamanian economy, weak education, excessive bureaucracy and lack of road infrastructure, elements that put us at a disadvantage to exploit the trend towards the full opening of markets. "

And the writer says that the fastest growing sectors in Panama are precisely the most exposed to competition, quoting Carlos Gonzalez Ramirez of the Panamanian Association of Business Executives (Apede), who says that "the sectors with the most openness in Panama, such as finance, ports and tourism, reported higher growth as they are being more exposed to global competition.

Gonzalez Ramirez insists that "Competition makes companies more competitive and determines their survival in the market."
