The growth rate of internet use among 15 of the 21 less developed countries is higher than that of some developed countries, according to a report released by the Chinese Academy of Cyberspace Studies on Wednesday.

According to the World Internet Development Report 2023, released during the 2023 World Internet Conference (WIC) Wuzhen Summit, this progress is attributed to the stimulation of the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), especially the Digital Silk Road.

The report also evaluated the development of the internet in 52 countries and regions around the world. It said the top 10 countries with the highest internet development level were the United States, China, Singapore, the Netherlands, South Korea, Finland, Sweden, Japan, Canada and France.
