Abstract

This paper compares the ICT impacts occurred in Czech industries during years 1995-2006 to those in Slovenia. We examined whether macro panel data analysis proves significance of ICT capital variable in sense of productivity growth on the whole economy. Unfortunately, there are not many studies observing the ICT impacts from perspective of Central and Eastern European (CEE) countries, even if ICTs are assumed to have potential to enhance economic growth, labour productivity, competitiveness of developing countries and lower income gap within Europe.

Key words: ICT, Czech Republic, Slovenia, Panel Data Analysis
