News & Benchmarks

Luxembourg is one of the leading countries in the world regarding its ability to embrace information and communications technology (ICT) opportunities. The Grand Duchy ranks 9th in the world in the Networked Readiness Index, calculated as part of the World Economic Forum’s recently published Global Information Technology Report 2015. This index measures the ability of individuals, businesses and governments in each country to reap economic and social benefits from ICT. A total of 53 indicators are examined to calculate the index, and Luxembourg scored 5.6. This puts it just behind top ranked Singapore (6.0), Finland (6.0) and Sweden (5.8) but ahead of Germany (13th), Belgium (24th) and France (26th). These indicators are grouped into four categories and ten sub-categories and Luxembourg is well placed in each: 7th for uptake and use of ICT among governments, business and individuals (Sub-categories: citizens 6th, business 11th and government 11th) 10th for business and innovation environment, and the political and regulatory framework (Sub-categories: political and regulatory 3rd, business environment 27th) 12th for economic and social impacts accruing from ICT Sub-categories: economic impact 8th, social impact 20th 19th for ICT infrastructure cost of access and the presence of the necessary skills to ensure optimal use Sub-categories: infrastructure 18th, skills 18th, costs 50th   To conclude, the authors of the study had the following observations concerning Luxembourg: "Ranked 21st in 2012, Luxembourg continues on its impressive upward trend and enters the top 10 for the first time, at 9th place. The country benefits from a stable and efficient political and regulatory environment (3rd) with a well-developed ICT legislative framework (2nd). Venture capital availability (10th) and low tax rates (13th), among other factors, foster business development and innovation (27th). Luxembourg also possesses excellent infrastructure (18th). ICT usage is widespread among the population, business, and government alike, even though the country comes up short in terms of affordability (50th). A service-based economy, Luxembourg is greatly influenced by information technology. Almost 60 percent of the workforce is employed in knowledge-intensive jobs (1st), and ICTs largely foster the development of new services and products (7th) and new organisational models (17th). In recent years, the Government has done a good job of developing a vision for ICTs (5th) and promoting its deployment (4th), helped by the public-private partnerships formed in the context of the Luxembourg ICT Cluster Initiative. However, there is room to improve government online services (42nd) and to facilitate citizens’ e-participation (54th)".   Access here the Global Information Technology Report 2015.
