ICT Sector for the Innovation Economy

  • Nagy K. Hanna
Part of the Innovation, Technology, and Knowledge Management book series (ITKM)


Information and communication technology contribute to development in two ways: (1) as an enabler for the delivery of public and commercial services and a core technological competency for transforming all sectors of the economy; and (2) as an industry, a new source of growth and keystone sector of the knowledge economy in its own right. Chapters 4 and 5 have addressed the potential of applying this technological competency to transform business and promote grassroots innovation. This chapter focuses on the second contribution.
