Abstract

The present study aims at investigating the impact of information and communication technology (ICT) on economic growth of countries in the Arabian Peninsula region through an econometric study of seven countries over the period 1996-2020. To achieve the objectives of the study, the panel data was based on three independent variables, namely the number of mobile cellular subscriptions per 100 people, number of fixed (landline) telephone subscriptions per 100 people, internet usage (% of population), and the economic growth rate as a dependent variable. The results show that within the framework of static analysis the fixed effects model is the most appropriate and is evidence of the existence of fixed individual differences between the countries of the Arabian Peninsula as regards the impact of ICT on economic growth. It also shows that the mobile phone index has a positive and significant impact, and a negative and significant impact on economic growth is shown to be related to the internet index.
