Digital Communications

Más detalles en español: ¿Qué país latinoamericano es líder en tecnología digital?

Chile has one of the most competitive markets for digital communications in the world and comes top for digital readiness among Latin American and Caribbean nations, according to the latest Networked Readiness Index (NRI) from the World Economic Forum. The country also does well on social impact and comes 7th globally on e-participation.

The NRI is part of the World Economic Forum’s Global Information Technology Report 2015: ICTs for Inclusive Growth and scores nations on four counts of their readiness to exploit new digital technologies: 1) the regulatory and business environment, 2) infrastructure, affordability, and skills, 3) usage by businesses, individuals and government, and 4) social and economic impact.

Here are the top 10 Latin American and Caribbean digital nations:
