A competitive government needs to effectively intervene in strategic planning and priority setting for agricultural innovation and development, including the provision of incentives for private agents and technical assistance consultants.

EducationQuality human resources are important for a competitive economy. Governments should develop effective educational policies that value certain critical elements based on an integrated standard prioritizing equality of opportunity.
