Denmark is the most digital country in the world

For two years in a row, Denmark has been ranked the most digital country in the EU. Now, Denmark is also named the most digital country in the world in the International Digital Economy and Society Index 2018.

A tech-savvy population, extensive digitisation of public services, and enterprises that are among the first to implement new digital technology.

These are some of the reasons why Denmark is ranked the most digital country in the world by the European Commission who has authored the International Digital Economy and Society Index 2018.

“Having fostered global successes such as Skype, Trustpilot and JustEat, Denmark is one of the most creative and innovative countries in the EU and the world. Denmark is pushing a progressive digitisation agenda in the public sector making data accessible for companies. This makes Greater Copenhagen a leading hotspot for innovative tech startups and smart city solutions”

separator- Claus Lønborg, CEO, Copenhagen Capacity.
