2008 ICT rankings

Talking about ICT. A new ranking has been released by the World Economic Forum at http://www.weforum.org/pdf/gitr/2008/Rankings.pdf. According to their report, Denmark is still the most networked economy in the world (for 2 consecutive years). The report was subdivided into 4 parts:

  1. Findings of the Networked Readiness Index (NRI) 2007–2008, together with a number of insightful essays on selected issues of networked readiness, with aspecific focus on how it can foster innovation.
  2. Country/Regional case studies showcasing best policies and practices in fostering networked readiness
  3. Detailed profiles for each of the 127 economies covered in the Report, presenting a comprehensive snapshot of each economy’s current networked readiness status and allowing for international and historical comparison on specific variables orcomponents of the NRI.
  4. Detailed data tables for each of the 68 variables composing the NRI

The Philippines falls at 81, five ranks lower than its neighbor Indonesia who is at rank 76. I hope the Philippines will climb higher fast enough. It has many promising talents who can communicate effectively with the international community far better than any other Asian countries. As part of the ICT community, I am still full of hope. The corrupt cannot stop us from succeeding. :D.
