Informations- och kommunikationsteknologins effekt på afrikanska länders export

Detta är en Magister-uppsats från Lunds universitet/Nationalekonomiska institutionen

Sammanfattning: This study aims to examine the effects of information and communications technology (ICT) on international trade in African countries. Panel data is used for 54 African countries from 2001 to 2010. The African countries are divided into three groups: North Africa & South Africa (NS), Sub-Saharan coast (SSK) and Sub- Saharan landlocked (SSI). The Gravity model is employed to form a theoretical and empirical foundation. A fixed effects model is applied to estimate the impact of Internet, mobile and fixed telephone on exports. The empirical results suggest that mobile usage has positive effect on trade in all three groups, Internet has positive effect on trade in NS and SSK and fixed telephone has positive effect on trade in SSI.
