In this paper it is outlined the methodology of the model MIREM (Multicriteria Industrial and Regional Economic Model) as the empirical framework for the implementation of an industrial policy in the CEECs countries aspiring to enter the European Union. Its epistemological foundations are taken from M. Porter Theory of Competitive Advantage and B. Balassa Theory of Economic Integration and focus mainly on the competitiveness concept.
The choice of multicriteria decision making (MCDM) method “Electre-tri”, presentation of criteria families and simulation of the MIREM by means of an analogue model are presented in order to assess the adequacy of the multicriteria methodology to the problematic of integration.
