Iceland ranking no 2 using information and communication technolo


Global Information Technology Report is a benchmarking tool that can be used to determine national ICT strengths and weaknesses, and to evaluate progress.

The Global Information Technology Report 2004-2005 is the fourth in a series assessing the state of the networked readiness of 104 economies. It is an update of the previous Reports, capturing new insights and best practices and gleaning policy lessons from various country experiences. The Report remains the most comprehensive and authoritative international assessment of the preparedness of countries to capture the benefits of participating in the Networked World.

It also highlights the continuing importance of ICT application and development for economic growth.

Iceland goes from 10 place last year to the second.

The Report uses the Networked Readiness Index (NRI), covering a total of 104 economies in 2004-2005, to measure "the degree of preparation of a nation or community to participate in and benefit from ICT developments".

The NRI is composed of three component indexes which assess:
  • the environment for ICT offered by a given country or community
  • thereadinessof the community's key stakeholders - individuals, business and governments
  • and the usage of ICT among these stakeholders
