Global Innovation Index 2017 – Singapore Tops Asia in 7th Place

The 2017 Global Innovation Index has out for a few months now but I was looking at it again today and thought it worthwhile posting.

As has been the case for a number of years now, Singapore tops the regional rankings coming in at 7th place overall (down from 6th last year). Next comes South Korea (11th), Japan (14th), Hong Kong (16th) and PRChina (22nd) finishing up the ASEAN and Asian entries in the top 25.

The Index is prepared annually by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) and, this year, looked at 127 countries across 82 metrics such as education, infrastructure, financial systems, labor force, and others.
