With a score of 5.89, Japan falls six places to finish 16th amongst the Innovation-driven economies on the Connectivity Scorecard 2011, compared to 10th place last year with a score of 6.73.
Japan remained very strong on the Consumer Infrastructure component of the Scorecard, but its relative advantage on this component was reduced relative to last year, owing to changes in the indicators used. A full accounting of Japan’s performance and the reason for its sharp downgrading this year are discussed subsequently.
