Switzerland rated among best-networked nations

Switzerland has been ranked fifth in the World Economic Forum’s so-called Networked Readiness Index, behind Sweden, Singapore, Finland and Denmark.

The Geneva-based forum’s index tries to measure a country’s capacity to make the most of new internet technologies.

Switzerland does well because of a favourable political environment, innovation, good infrastructure, above-standard technical training at its universities as well as high usage of information technology by consumers and businesses.

The United States is ranked eighth, ahead of Canada and Britain. France manages to finish only 23rd.

Among the emerging economic nations, China is 51st, Russia 56th, Brazil 65th, India 69th and South Africa 72nd. According to the forum, these countries are economically competitive on a global level but have been slow to adopt the latest technologies.
