Sri Lanka scores 2.01 and falls three places to rank 19th among the resource and efficiency- driven¹ economies on the Connectivity Scorecard 2011. However, despite such a performance, the country once again manages to outperform its South Asian neighbors India, Bangladesh and Pakistan this year.
Sri Lanka achieves moderate scores in the consumer infrastructure metrics, and slightly better scores in the consumer usage and skills metrics. However, the country’s weak business infrastructure has a large negative impact on its overall score. It is also indicative of the obstacles faced by the country in harnessing Information and Communications Technology (ICT) for socio-economic development.
