The survey was conducted by the African Business Panel in The Netherlands, which comprises 800 business executives who give advice about economic and financial issues on the African continent.

Top of the ICT league are South Africa, Nigeria and Kenya.

Ghana, Egypt, Rwanda, Botswana, Angola, Uganda, and Zimbabwe are the Runners-Up and complete the Top 10 countries out of 53 economies on the continent.

The Minister on Information and Communication Technology, Nelson Chamisa, has regularly blasted the government for failing to recognise that the ICT sector should receive massive investment in order to compete with not only African countries but with the world, which is fast becoming a "global village" using cyber-technology.

Chamisa was appointed Zimbabwe's first ICT minister in the GNU.
