Summary

The Japan Center for Economic Research (JCER)’s newly developed “Digital Potential Index” measures the potential of 84 countries and regions around the world to promote Digital Transformation (DX), key to economic growth. Sweden, which has made progress in the digitization of public services and DX in education, and is rich in both infrastructure and human resources, ranked first in 2020, with Singapore in second place. Although Japan has made progress in infrastructure development, it faces many headwinds in terms of regulations and business practices, and was ranked 16th.
