Abstract

Information technology has gained considerable prominence among both researchers and practitioners concerned with economic development in recent years, because of its potential to transform fundamentally both economic activity and the global relationships within which development takes place. Developed countries have set out to harness this potential, as is evident in the increasingly pervasive profile of this technology in these countries and the importance attached by these countries to its adoption and diffusion. These trends in the developed countries and the implications generated by the revolution in information technology have made it critical for the developing countries to be also involved in the race to exploit information technology for rapid economic development.
