Resumen

In this work we elaborate a proposal for policy guidelines for the improvement of productivity and competitiveness of the province of Tungurahua -Ecuador-, such proposal is based on the theoretical foundations about the concept of a comprehensive, territorial and sustainable development applied to the territorial diagnosis. Herein three analysis techniques were used as a methodological strategy: The Rasmussen Method, which consists of a multisector model based on the Input-Output Tables-; the technique of focus groups for the analysis of perception on the prioritization of key sectors by the population and by the productive sectors; and the Shift-Share Analysis, to determine the level of growth of some sectors with respect to others. The results have allowed the identification of the strengths and weaknesses, as well as, the opportunities and threats associated with the levels of productivity and competitiveness of the province of Tungurahua. Therefore, strategies have been formulated aimed at the comprehensive, territorial and sustainable development of the province, which are built on the strengthening of endogenous capacities in science, technology and innovation, the encouragement of a coordination and articulation between the actors, the strengthening of the local business web and the internationalization of the territory.
