Computers control and facilitate many aspects of life: from the braking systems in some cars, to contacting people who live on the other side of the world. Of all export earnings, 10.6% are from computer exports.

Singapore is the highest per person earner from net computer exports, where earnings are two and a half times as much as Ireland, the second biggest per person earner.

The regions of Asia Pacific, East Asia and Japan have the highest net exports. Western European net exporting territories counter-balance the smaller flow of net computer imports into that region.

"Singapore is to be transformed into an intelligent island, where IT permeates every aspect of the society - at home, work, and play." Chun Wei Choo, 1997

Territory size shows the proportion of worldwide net exports of computers (in US$) that come from there. Net exports are exports minus imports. When imports are larger than exports the territory is not shown.
