There is growing demand from academia and policymakers for cross-country comparable firm data. CompNet aims to provide such data and to improve understanding of the drivers of competitiveness. Among the findings in the latest cross-country report are that healthy firms are more likely to be credit constrained in the presence of a high share of distressed firms; that the disconnection between real wages and productivity growth in the post-crisis period has been rather heterogeneous across EU firms; and that exporting firms are more productive, larger, pay higher wages, and employ more qualified personnel.
