UAE ranks first at Global Knowledge Index regionally

The UAE has ranked first in the Arab World and 11th globally in the fifth edition of the Global Knowledge Index.

For the fifth consecutive time, Switzerland has retained its top position. It is followed by Sweden, the US, Finland and the Netherlands.

The index is produced annually since 2017 by the Knowledge Project, a partnership between UN and MBRF. It includes 155 variables, selected by over 40 international sources and data bases.

MBRF CEO Jamal bin Huwaireb said the relentless quest for knowledge has led us to develop vaccines and precautionary measures against the COVID-19, and brought us back to a life of normalcy.

This year, 154 countries participated at GKI, compared to 138 last year.
