ITU Ranks Belarus as IDI Leader in CIS Region


The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) released its annual global ICT data report and country rankings based on the Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) Development Index.

According to the report Measuring the Information Society 2014 published by the International Telecommunications Union, Belarus is ranked 38th among 166 countries on the ICT development index (IDI). IDI is a composite index that covers access to ICTs, the use of ICT, and ICT skills.

With an IDI value of 6.89 in 2013, Belarus is the highest ranked country in the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) regional group while leaving behind some of the EU states as well, including Lithuania (40th), Czech Republic (41st), and Poland (44th).

ITU ranks Belarus #1 among CIS countries on ICT development index

The significant increase of the country's absolute IDI figure puts Belarus in the Top 9 Most Dynamic Countries. The group of 'most dynamic countries' features the economies that have recorded above–average improvements in their IDI rank over the past 12 months. Belarus is the only country from the CIS region that was included in the group.

In 2013, Belarus has by far the highest fixed–broadband penetration in the region, at 30 per cent.

Belarus' ICT stands head and shoulders above other CIS countries in 2013

Belarus is ranked 35th by the ICT price basket performing better than numerous EU states, including Malta (37th), Italy (42nd), Slovenia (43rd), Latvia (44th), Poland (50th ), Estonia (51st), Portugal (52nd), Slovakia (54th), Spain (55th), Greece (59th), Czech Republic (62th), Romania (64th), and Hungary(78th).

With its IDI skills sub–index of 9.69, Belarus showed one of the world's best results being the same as the previous year. In 2013, Belarus ranks #4 by its ICT skills considering the country's gross secondary enrolment ratio 106.4, gross tertiary enrolment ratio 91.5, and adult literacy rate 99.6.
