The Global Information Technology Report 2009-2010
The World Economic Forum has released, for the ninth consecutive year, the Global Information Technology Report 2009-2010, which measures the extent to which 133 economies from both the developed and developing worlds leverage ICT advances for increased growth and development through the methodological framework of the Networked Readiness Index (NRI).
The NRI identifies the most relevant factors facilitating ICT readiness, providing policymakers, business leaders, and all other relevant stakeholders with a unique tool in drawing national roadmaps toward increased networked readiness, one that they can use to benchmark their country’s performance over time and vis-à-vis other economies.
Sweden tops the rankings followed by Singapore and Denmark, which was in the number one position for the last three years. Switzerland (4), the United States (5) and the other Nordic countries together with the Canada, Hong Kong and the Netherlands complete the top 10.
