  • Brunei Can Climb World ICT Readiness Rankings Through 'Environment'

    With a ranking of 63rd out of 133 countries in ICT readiness, Brunei trails behind Vietnam but has bested Philippines and Cambodia, according to a report that provides an annual assessment of global economies.

    The Global Information Technology Report (GITR) also indicates that the country's government readiness towards ICT had actually fallen, while business readiness climbed. The biggest jump by sector in the Networked Readiness Index (NRI), from 40 (NRI 2008/2009) to 76 (NRI 2009/2010), actually came from individuals.
