Abstract: The development and use of information and communication technologies is one of the key drivers of the 'knowledge economy.' In this paper, we investigate the impact of information technology on the output growth of the Singapore economy using the input-output framework. The input-output framework allows us to understand the impact of information sector in an integrated framework in terms of its linkages to the manufacturing and service sectors. In particular, we adopt the input-output approach to shed light on both production and diffusion activities of the information sector on the Singapore economy. The results indicate that the ICT sector provided the key linkages for the expansion of high-value added manufacturing activities and electronics export for the Singapore economy. © 2013 Copyright The International Input-Output Association.
