Introduction of smart phone opened a gate to a new era where people’s dependency on Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in everyday life is stronger than ever. With its paradigm shift to the rapidly-growing data communication, industrial reform was made while more information flows in and out of handsets and devices.
It is widely accepted that the development of ICT is a key factor for establishing foundation for a state development. The main idea is that the devices and digitalization of systems will increase the performance efficiency in almost all aspects, which will result in a general increase in outputs of those sectors with ICT implementation. Especially with possibilities of skipping the infrastructure establishment of 3rd Generation communication technology and leapfrogging to the 4th Generation, the belief became a taken for granted; ICT reform is a panacea for every development related problem. However, creating a smooth ICT environment from scratch requires a tremendous amount of financial investment and time, and it is strongly questionable whether such investment is worth betting for higher return.
This thesis will cover the impact of ICT on state development, and engage in a conversation whether ICT for Development is an effective tool.
