New Zealand is climbing up the globalisation rankings with our use of technology.
A new report from Ernst & Young says the country's exceptionally strong performance in technology is set to propel us up the globalisation rankings.
Newstalk ZB business correspondent Roger Kerr says currently New Zealand is ranked 21st, ahead of Australia on 24th and the US economy at 25th.
"With our fast broadband coming on stream, we're expected to climb up the league table to 12th position by 2016 - somewhere near Finland - with the improvement coming from higher broadband penetration."
Top of the rankings is Hong Kong, followed by Singapore and Ireland.
