L'heure pour entreprendre!

Sub-Saharan Africa did very poorly on the latest World Economic Forum’s Networked Readiness Index (NRI) with the majority of the region lagging in the bottom half of the 138 countries being ranked in the report. Exceptions were Mauritius (which ranks 47th) and South Africa (which ranks 61st).
Burundi (137th) and Chad (138th) were the worst ranked of all countries on the list.
Rwanda, which probably would have fared pretty well within Sub-Saharan Africa, was not ranked. This is rather strange since Rwanda’s ICT efforts are mentioned in the report. Moreover, Rwanda’s government has set the country on a fast-lane to technology growth.
The ranking holds some surprises. The Gambia and Senegal rank higher than Kenya even though Kenya did rise 9 places since the 2010 report. Hmmm. How much did The Gambian and Senegalese governments pay? 🙂
