Which countries are leading the way in anticipating change and helping their citizens adapt to it? In today’s fast-paced world where change happens in an instant, nations are competing in a global tech race to develop futuristic technology. CEOWORLD magazine has once again ranked countries based on their ability to quickly anticipate and implement change at the grassroots level.
Luxembourg is the most forward-thinking country in the world for 2023, according to the CEOWORLD magazine rankings, while Liechtenstein and Monaco placed second and third, respectively. The 2023 rankings placed Switzerland in fourth ahead of Norway; while Ireland ranked sixth, and Singapore seventh.
Overall, among the world’s top 10 most forward-thinking countries for 2023, the eighth, ninth, and tenth positions are held by the United States, Iceland, and Denmark.
The most forward thinking countries in the world, 2023
Detailed findings & methodology: In order to determine the rankings, researchers at the CEOWORLD magazine compiled, analyzed, and compared 164 countries across 10 key categories: availability of government online services, mobile accessibility, bureaucratic, cashless payments, availability of high-speed internet at home, entrepreneurial, innovative, technological expertise, open access to the internet, and digitally forward-thinking lifestyles.
To evaluate those dimensions, researchers looked at 36 indicators that fell into one of the 10 categories. An index has been created scoring the individual indicators on a scale of 1-100. Each individual indicator was given equal weighting within each of the 5 categories with some indicators being comprised of 2-3 sub-indicators that were also weighted equally.
The study is based on a detailed global perceptions-based survey conducted between July 2023 and August 2023 by the CEOWORLD magazine of 120,000 business decision-makers. CEOWORLD magazine put together a panel of experts to go over data points culled from sources like the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), World Economic Forum, Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), U.S. News & World Report, the United Nations Economic and Social Council, and the World Bank. Based on a consensus from these sources, the final choice of countries was judged editorially, as was their position on the list. All data is for the most recent period available. Some countries and territories were not included in the official statistics for various reasons, primarily due to the lack of necessary data. Also, countries and territories with low initial scores were excluded from the list as the comparison would create misleading results.
The margin of sampling error for the full sample of 120,000 respondents is plus or minus 1.2 percentage points. In addition to sampling error, one should bear in mind that as in all survey research, there are possible sources of error—such as coverage, nonresponse, and measurement error——that could affect the results.
