Huawei-Touts-2015-Global-Connectivity-Index-for-Countries-300x220Huawei has released its 2017 Global Connectivity Index (GCI) for countries, benchmarking 50 economies in terms of connectivity, ICT usage, and digital transformation, providing an indicator of which countries are best poised for development and growth, and an ICT planning reference for policymakers looking to embrace the digital economy.

The GCI report measures the relationship between ICT investment and GDP growth, and shows that every additional $1 of ICT infrastructure investment made could bring a return of $3 in GDP at present, $3.70 in 2020, and the potential return increases to $5 in 2025.
