TIME: 12:00-1:15 p.m.
LOCATION: Student Building, Room 150


Information and Communications Technology (ICT) has made the world more networked and interdependent than ever before. As we become further connected, developing economies are able to utilize ICT in order to stimulate progress and invest in their futures as players in the global economy. ICT has played a pivotal role in transforming many resource-based economies in Asia into knowledge-based ones. It has also been found that public investment in telecommunication is positively associated with economic growth, particularly in periods of economic difficulty. ICT contributes to economic competitiveness through productivity growth, cost reduction, innovation, and the easing of geographical constraints. This presentation will examine the effects of ICT and address its significant role in developing Asian economies.
