ICT adoption and use in the Public Sector of a Least Developed Country (LDC)

The Case of Bangladesh

Research output: A Conference proceeding or a Chapter in BookConference contribution

Abstract

The Digital Divide between the Least Developed Countries (LDC) and the developed world appears to be widening despite globalization and initiatives at national and international levels. The transfer and adoption of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) as a whole has been quite slow in many LDCs. Only a few of the 50 LDCs (UN-OHRLLS, 2007), are transforming to transition economies and many are lagging behind, most of which are located in sub-Saharan Africa and south Asia (Rice, 2003, p.74). ICT adoption and implementation is seen as a complex issue in the LDCs, involving many contextual influences. However, the adoption of ICT in LDCs could yield significant benefits in improving the economy and addressing many deep-rooted problems such as corruption, transparency and poor governance in public sector administration (World-Bank, 2005). Well developed information systems can also play an integral part in improving business activity and international competitiveness (OECD, 2003).
