UAE – Most networked economy


Strong support and priority by the UAE government to the information and communication technology (ICT) sector raised the UAE’s ranking among the world’s most networked economies globally by four positions to 23rd place in a latest study. According to the World Economic Forum’s latest The Global Information Technology Report 2009-10, the UAE’s impressive performance in recent years has been driven by a strong and consistent government focus on ICT – second and 29th for government readiness and usage, respectively — as a key factor for its vision for the future.

The government has not only been quite successful in promoting ICT diffusion, but is widely using it to improve its efficiency, albeit government online services and e-participation remain low, said the report.

Among the country’s many other strengths are its outstanding individual preparation and ICT usage together with its ICT-conducive market environment.

    UAE is marching ahead in all sectors, not only in the communication sector but also in the tourism sector. It is another success that UAE government is not only promoting communication technology but widely using it to improve its efficiency.
