How digital is your country? New DESI Index released

On May 18th the European Commission published the results of the 2018 Digital Economy and Society Index (DESI), a tool which monitors the performance of Member States in digital connectivity, digital skills online activity, the digitisation of businesses and digital public services. The DESI Index reveals that the EU is getting more digital, but progress remains insufficient for Europe to catch up with global leaders and to reduce differences across Member States.

Denmark, Sweden, Finland and the Netherlands scored the highest ratings in DESI 2018 and are among the global leaders in digitalisation. They are followed by Luxembourg, Ireland, the UK, Belgium and Estonia. Ireland, Cyprus and Spain progressed the most (by more than 15 points) over the last four years. However, some other EU countries still have a long way to go.

Italy belongs to the low-performing cluster of countries, ranking 25th out of the 28 Member States. However, it made progress in general over the last year and Integration of Digital Technologies and Digital Public Services are the main drivers of digital progress.

The full list of the Country Reports is available here.
