The World Economic Forum (WEF) has just published a league table of countries that are economically better off because of their adoption and use of modern IT. The WEF, if you recall, is that outfit which provides junkets a forum for meaningful dialogue for the world’s super rich A listers and political elite concerned entrepreneurs, individuals and policy makers in the Swiss ski resort “think-tank” town of Davos.

This kind of list is very difficult to compile and I suspect only marginally more useful to the world than my laundry list for my local dry-cleaning shop. But the good news is that Bangladesh is not at the bottom. No. Not by a long shot. Of the 127 countries surveyed Bangladesh comes in at 124. What a fine testament to the stewardship of our IT sector by the governments of Khaleda and Hasina. We are just pipped by India (ranked No 50 and ahead of us by only 74 countries).
