 Saudi Arabia ranked among the top ten countries in digital literacy in a report by the World Economic Forum; the Saudi Press Agency has reported.


The Kingdom joins other developed nations in the list of countries whose "active population possess sufficient digital skills;" including Singapore, Denmark, and Finland leading the pack.
