over the last decade has made it the fourth largest economy in the world, with a GDP of $4 trillion

information technology and related services. Nevertheless, it is still a low-income country, and while
pockets of extraordinary innovation exist, its national HIT infrastructure and basic infrastructure
continues to lag.
