Island tops digital rankings
Bermuda took top spot in a competition to find the world’s best digital jurisdiction.
The island won the prize from UK magazine World Commerce Review — regarded as the principal awards for professional conduct and excellence.
Grant Gibbons, Minister of Economic Development, congratulated the island’s ICT sector who he said were “instrumental” in picking up the distinction.
Dr Gibbons added: “Bermuda’s first-class telecommunications infrastructure and ICT sector complement each other in supporting our jurisdiction.”
The selection panel took into account product innovation, customer support and best practice criteria, as well as continuing commitment to using the best technology and practice to increase productivity.
In addition, forward planning and corporate social responsibility were seen as key areas.
Bermuda has won the same award twice before, in 2013 and 2014.
A government spokeswoman said Bermuda had been known as “the Wired Island” for more than a decade, with the country consistently ranked in the Economist Intelligence Unit’s top 22 jurisdictions in the world for e-readiness.
