A COMPARISON OF NORTHERN IRELAND ’S PRODUCTIVITY AND EFFICIENCY ACROSS SERVICES AND MANUFACTURING i Preface 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). average productivity in Northern Ireland might be compared to average productivity in the UK, i.e., IlGyjVij/ey) Xi = ^—Z = ££nijPij XSey i j i j where, n^ = / ZiSjey and py =v^/e y. Such economy-wide comparisons provide a useful guide to the relative level of wealth creation in each economy. 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 to investigate approaches and strategies Author: Adrian T.H. Kuah, Philip Shapira, Eleanor Doyle, Damian R. Ward. NORTHERN Ireland has stopped making things after shock new figures reveal that productivity in the region "is among the lowest in the developed world".
Note*: The comparative productivity of the external country compared to the UK (in terms of GDP per worker) is compared to Northern Ireland compared to the UK average (in terms of GVA per job filled). Table 2 indicates that the average productivity of the Northern Ireland economy was lower than all the comparative developed economies. level and in Northern Ireland (NI). Whilst productivity features in many Economic Strategies and plans, with considerable weight being placed on improvement, it remains poorly understood by many and is often confused with the wider measure of standards of living (GDP per capita or GVA per capita). Join us at the Northern Ireland Manufacturing & Supply Chain Expo is being held in the Titanic Exhibition Centre, Belfast on 25th of February to hear from an impressive line-up of manufacturing leaders, academics and government agencies who will engage in a stimulating blend of key note addresses and debates. Manufacturing Northern Ireland. MNI is a campaigning organisation which works with member companies, workforce representatives, policymakers and regulators to challenge and encourage change in areas which impact on the cost of doing business, specifically rates, energy and labour.
The Relative Competitiveness and Performance of Small Manufacturing Firms in Scotland and the Mid-West of Ireland: An Analysis of Matched Pairs Article Feb Get this from a library! Closing the productivity gap: a comparison of Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland, Britain, and West Germany. [D M W N Hitchens; Karin Wagner; J E Birnie]. Manufacturing within Northern Ireland has grown almost three times faster than the rest of the UK and employment in manufacturing accounts for 11% of employment in Northern Ireland (Government of NI, ). In terms of GVA, the most important manufacturing sector in the North West is food products, beverages and tobacco industry. Northern Ireland’s low level of productivity, which is among the worst in Europe and the lowest across the UK regions, is a barrier to economic growth – and that is a major concern. Labour productivity is 17% below the UK average which in itself is also in the bottom league across the EU member states.
