Abstract

Need for ICT adoption reached to a critical point for the Least Developed Countries (LDCs) to survive in this modern economy. This research aims to gain an in-depth understanding of impediments and the associated issues related to ICT adoption in public sectors within a LDC environment. Bangladesh is chosen as case study for this research to represent a typical LDC. A preliminary analysis of focus group data shows evidence of a deep rooted cause, lack of proper knowledge and awareness as the major barrier which gives important direction for further research.
