ZAGREB, Oct 1 (Hina) – Croatia ranks 52nd on the IMD World Digital Competitiveness Ranking, which measures the capacity and readiness of 63 economies to adopt and explore digital technologies as a key driver for economic transformation in business, government and wider society.
Croatia has generally made considerable progress in terms of its digital abilities, however, this has been insufficient for the country to improve its competitiveness globally, the head of the Croatian National Competitiveness Council (NVK), Ivica Mudrinic, said on Thursday while commenting on the latest, third edition of the ranking issued by the IMD World Competitiveness Center on 1 October.
The United States and Singapore have come in first and second, respectively, in the 2020 IMD World Digital Competitiveness Ranking, an analysis of how economies employ digital technologies, which could help predict their ability to weather the pandemic. The latest ranking positions Denmark in third place and Sweden in fourth.
Mudrinic says that Croatia is quite successful in knowledge and technologies.
Measured by the factor Knowledge, Croatia fares best, 41st place, and its performance in the factor Technology places it on the 49th position.
However, its poorest performance is in the factor “Future Readiness”, 62nd place.
