The world economy is increasingly driven by technological innovations. UNCTAD’s Information Economy Report 2007-2008 analyses the current and potential contributions of information and communications technology (ICT) to knowledge creation and diffusion. It looks at how developing countries use technology to generate innovations that improve the livelihoods of the poor and support enterprise competitiveness. It also examines the impact of ICTs on productivity and growth, international trade and employment in developing countries.




The Information Economy Report 2007-2008 was prepared under the overall direction of Anh-Naga Tran-Nguyen, Director of UNCTAD’s Division for Services Infrastructure for Development and Trade Efficiency (SITE). It was written by a team supervised by Geneviève Férayd, Chief of the ICT and E-Bussiness Branch, until her change of functions on 1 October 2007, and consisting of the following UNCTAD staff members: Cécile Barayre, Dimo Calovski, Scarlett FOunder Gil, Angel González Sanz, Muriel Guigue, Rouben Indjikian, Diana Korka, Marta Pérez Cusó and Susan Teltsher.
