LE updated the KPIs for the AmCham EU ‘Agenda for Action Scorecard 2015’. The scorecard uses Agenda for Action’s five key policy action areas (skills, single market, industrial leadership, entrepreneurship & internationalisation) to measure Europe’s performance over time. The performance of each action area is measured by five indicators, both quantitative and qualitative. For each action area, there are three quantitative indicators, which are chosen from credible public sources (Eurostat, OECD, etc.). In addition, there are two qualitative indicators, which are based on survey responses of AmCham EU members. Indicators are weighted equally and combined into a composite Index. The indicators cover education and skills, productivity and regulatory burdens, innovation and technology, entrepreneurship, and trade liberalisation and attractiveness for foreign investors. The Scorecard is accompanied by a detailed methodological note and a report analysing the trajectory of the EU’s performance across all indicators over the period 2007-2015.
