THE NETHERLANDS IS ONE OF THE BEST COUNTRIES FOR TECH COMPANIES, SAYS NEW RANKING
Holland ranks highly for technology readiness by the Economist Intelligence Unit. Thanks to the Netherlands’ high-quality digital connectivity, the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) rates the Netherlands as one of the top 10 most technology-ready countries in the world. Holland’s high ranking indicates that the Dutch digital ecosystem is an ideal location for technology companies to invest.
The EIU Technological Readiness Ranking evaluates countries across three categories: access to internet, digital economy infrastructure and openness to innovation. The Netherlands scored particularly well in the second category, ranking as the best e-commerce environment thanks to its widespread mobile and broadband connections. According to the EIU report, “Countries with a strong e-commerce offering are increasingly finding themselves well placed to attract investment.”
