Greece scores 3.67 and climbs up two notch to 23rd among Innovation-driven¹ economies on the Connectivity Scorecard 2013 index.
Greece is continuing its weak performance. Despite the fact that the country enjoys a considerably higher GDP per capita than many of the transition economies of Eastern Europe, Greece performs very poorly on many metrics. In 10 out of the 40 metrics considered, the country ranks last or second last. Greece is particularly weak on several Internet-related measures of consumer usage and public sector infrastructure, but performs reasonably well on certain telephony-related measures.
With the ongoing economic crisis, efforts to boost the country’s use of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) could provide the necessary impetus for economic growth.
