ICT can contribute to income generation and poverty reduction. It enables people and enterprises to capture economic opportunities with a view to increasing process efficiency, promoting participation in expanded economic networks, and creating opportunities for employment.
ICT enables solution sharing among local people and communities providing access to practical information on such matters as small-sized business accounting, weather trends or best farming practices.
ICT facilitates global connectivity resulting in new ways of creating and delivering products and services on a global scale.
ICT provides developing countries with access to new markets and new sources of competitive advantage to boost income growth.
