THE WORLD Economic Forum (WEF) has published its chart of the most technologically-developed countries of the world, The Global IT Report, in which Slovakia has climbed two places since last year and is now 43rd in the rankings, the SITA newswire reported.
The chart takes account of several criteria like current usage of the latest information and communication technologies, or their readiness for home use in the near future.
According to this chart, some of Slovakia's neighbours are more technologically-developed: the Czech Republic was in 36th place, and Austria ranked 15. Barbados, Puerto Rico, Thailand and Cyprus are all apparently better off than Slovakia.
First place went to Denmark, the same as last year; Sweden took second and Switzerland third. The full chart is available at www.weforum.org.
