Denmark No.1 in the world for e-commerce  

A new survey carried out by the Economist Intelligence Unit and IBM ranks Denmark as No.1 in the world for e-commerce

A new survey by the Economist Intelligence Unit in conjunction with IBM ranks Denmark as No.1 in the world for e-commerce. The survey of 64 countries showed that Denmark has surpassed Sweden, which had pole position last year, while UK ranks second, up from third position in 2003. Sweden, Norway and Finland are respectively in third, fourth and fifth position, while the US slipped to sixth from joint third last year. Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan bring up the rear.


One of the categories where Denmark scores top marks is the political visions for e-government and the public sector's use of the internet. Peter Korsten, European Director of IBM's Institute for Business Value says that Denmark has a very active policy on reducing companies' administrative costs.


According to Reuters, the Scandinavian people have integrated internet technology into their lives, changing the way people work, shop and communicate with public authorities. The news is reported by Computerworld online and by BBC News online.
