E-Readiness Rankings 2002
February 16, 2003

The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) anually makes an assessment of the 60 largest economies in the world by means of their e-readiness. E-readiness is a shorthand for the extent to which a country’s business environment is conducive to Internet-based opportunities. It is a concept that spans a wide range of factors, from telephone penetration to online security to intellectual property protection.

Assessment is done by taking into account several factors including; connectivity and technology infrastructure, business environment, consumer and business adoption, social and cultural infrastructure, legal and policy environment and supporting e-services.

Below are some key points driven from the report:

  • North America, northern Europe and Australia take the top ten spots
  • Emerging markets suffer from poor IT infrastructure and a lack of financing
  • Location isn’t destiny; all regions feature both standouts and laggards
  • Top-notch infrastructure is vital, but business culture is even more critical
  • Conducive government policy gives leading countries a competitive edge
