  • Overall, due to the importance of their economies or to their particularly large ICT sector or strong ICT sector BERD intensities, only eight countries play significant roles in both ICT sector VA generation and ICT sector BERD in the EU according to this particular selection of indicators.
  • Unsurprisingly, the fact that emerges most clearly is the dominance of four major economies (France, Germany, Italy and the United Kingdom), although with some exceptions (e.g., Finland in ICT sector BERD).
