The index provides an overview of the progress of 90 countries in strengthening the digital economy, and the research covered the period of the global pandemic.
• Even in the midst of global closure, the most dynamic digital economies such as the United States, South Korea, Taiwan, the UAE, and Germany significantly outperformed the OECD growth rate in Q2 2020.
• The Czech Republic, Lithuania and Cyprus, together with these countries, are in the group of so-called outstanding economies, i.e. those that show great acceleration in development.
• China, India, Indonesia, Poland and Russia are rated as fast-growing economies that are also very attractive to investors due to acceleration and significant room for growth.
