ICT and Africa: Where Do We Stand?


While many African countries are now focusing on ICTs as a way to ensure long-term development, a rapport published by the World Economic Forum has revealed the rankings of African countries in comparison to the rest of the world.

Three criterias were used to evaluate the ranking:

1) The environment for the ICTs

2) The community’s willingness to use ICTs

3) The use of ICTs

Here is a list of the top 15 African countries in the ICT sector and their world ranking this year:

  1. South Africa–70
  2. Egypt–80
  3. Capo Verde–81
  4. Rwanda–88
  5. Morocco–89
