Industry 4.0 has attracted the attention of countries and companies from the first it was used. Companies try to transform themselves in the context of Industry 4.0. Countries also try to make themselves competitive by making the investments. This study uses a multidimensional scaling method to examine the countries of Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) (33 countries, excluding Latvia, Israel and Iceland) in the Industry 4.0 era. Four variables (the broadband, cloud, internet of things and artificial intelligence variables in the Global Connectivity Index published by Huawei) were used in the analysis. As a result of multidimensional scaling analysis, stress value was calculated as 0.09599 and R2 value as 0.96953. Based on the country scores, countries projected on a two-dimensional plane. While the highest country that has a positive value in the first dimension is United States, the country with the highest negative value is Turkey. Countries close to Turkey are, respectively, Poland, Mexico, Slovenia and Greece.
