In order not to be exposed to external shocks, it is necessary to ensure sustainable growth of the national economy.Only an economy that offers competitive products can achieve this goal. The object of the research is represented by the factors influencing the competitiveness of a product, and the main goals are the structuring of competitiveness factors and the development of new approaches in assessing competitive advantages. The following empirical and theoretical methods have been used in the study: observation and data collection, the method of scientific abstractions, comparative analysis, regression analysis, economic and mathematical modelling. In this article, the author has developed and applied two new ways to assess competitiveness.
