Annual survey

The PMR award is based on the results of an annual survey measuring companies, institutions, government entities and individuals in various regions throughout the country.

The five criteria that companies and institutions were rated against include: enhancing economic growth and development of its municipal area over the past 12 months, levels of managerial expertise, implementation of corporate governance, brand awareness, and levels of innovation.

The survey was conducted by means of telephonic interviews, between August and October, among a random sample of 150 respondents. The sample included CEOs, MDs, business owners, company directors, managers and senior government officials.
