Madagascar is a country where the human richness is important as well as its economic potential. These conditions authorize now Madagascar to migrate to a statute of LDC. From this point of view, it is necessary to focus the support of the State, of the institutions of research and education as well as the industry in a point which will make possible to create the necessary synergy between these actors. It is in this sense that it is proposed a methodological framework which will take account the local peculiarities, to carry out a Center of Competitiveness and Economic Intelligence (CCIE) in Madagascar. Various  orientations which seem a priority are analyzed and in the same time the key national laboratories (analyzes, tests, possibly of research) which will contribute to these orientations are presented. To reach this objective it will be necessary to set up a priority of a national program  to level the ground for the development of  standardization and quality. This global program will be implemented with the support of the State and the International Organizations under the supervision of the Steering Committee of the CCIE.
