ABSTRACT
The article deals with the continuing significance of productivity development. As a broad concept of continuously striving to make the best possible use of available resources to achieve societally desirable ends, the policy significance of productivity in the future can only be on the ascendant if Europe is to be the world's most competitive economy by 2010. However, competition does not preclude the establishment of review bodies, programs and perhaps even organizations, albeit often virtual, entrusted with boosting awareness of the importance of productivity development. So awareness of the importance of productivity needs constant reiteration.
