Sweden is the Best in the World at IT

IT in Sweden has been ranked better than any other country in the world.

The World Economic Forum has published the latest Global Information Technology Report (GITR). Since 2001 the GITR series has monitored the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) sector; raising global competitiveness within the industry. The report ranks countries from one to 138.  

Based on the Networked Readiness Index calculated over the last ten years, several factors are taken into account. The UK is in 15th position; with Netherlands, Luxembourg and Germany ranked higher. We will raise the profile of ICT in the BeNeLux region even further - Firebrand is in the process of introducing IT training in the Netherlands.
