The EU says Euro­peans’ on­line con­nec­tions and skills are im­prov­ing but there is still too large a gap be­tween the Nordic front-run­ners and lag­gards in the con­ti­nent’s south and east. The Euro­pean Union’s Dig­i­tal Econ­omy and So­ci­ety Index, re­leased yes­ter­day, showed Den­mark, Fin­land, Swe­den and the Nether­lands lead­ing a sur­vey that mea­sures coun­tries’ per­for­mance in ar­eas in­clud­ing con­nec­tiv­ity, dig­i­tal skills and the dig­i­ti­za­tion of busi­nesses and pub­lic ser­vices. Ro­ma­nia fin­ished last, fol­lowed by Bul­garia, Greece and Italy. terms of Al­ba­nia’s trade part­ners in re­cent years and 180,000 Al­ba­ni­ans have re­turned home from Greece. It is still a ma­jor eco­nomic player in Al­ba­nia, how­ever. “If they are go­ing up, we are go­ing up... If they are go­ing down we are go­ing down,” Ekonomi said, al­though deals to in­crease in­ter-Balkan trade means Greece’s trou­bles no longer have quite such a painful im­pact, she added.
