The UK has risen one place, to third, in a global ranking of most promising countries in the world for technology breakthroughs that have a global impact.

KPMG’s 2019 Technology Innovation Hubs report sees the UK trailing slightly behind the US and China, in a ranking of countries expected to produce the most disruptive technologies.

The UK and Japan were almost tied in last year’s survey with the UK coming in 4th place. This year however, the UK moved ahead to secure the bronze place, whilst Japan was ranked fourth, Singapore was ranked fifth and India dropped from third place to sixth.

The global survey of 740 business tech executives globally from companies, venture capital firms, and angel investors that focus on technology, also found that nearly 60 per cent believe that it is likely or very likely that the technology innovation centre of the world will move from Silicon Valley by 2023.
