UK ranks sixth for 'good connections'

The UK ranks sixth of 125 countries for good connections, says logistics firm DHL's Global Connectedness Index.

The report, conducted over six years with economist Professor Pankaj Ghemawat, also says that the UK's transport and communications infrastructure is the world's second most connected. Measures of connectivity were: information, capital, trade and migration. But the study adds that the UK still has room to improve.
