Event Title

Digital economy and technological readiness: impact on economic competitiveness in Kosovo

Session

Information Systems and Security

Description

Information and communication technology (ICT) have become an increasingly important element for firms to compete and prosper in a globalized world. It has evolved into a general-purpose technology given the spill over effect in other sectors of the economy and its efficient use in commercial transactions. ICT diffusion and regulation are increasingly viewed as an essential tool for economic competitiveness. Technological diffusion has spread to all countries at varying levels regardless of whether the country has specialized in computer production. They have become available for the business community, governments and the society at generally low cost. The purpose of this paper is to assess the agility with which Kosovo’s economy has adopted the existing technology for enhancing the productivity of existing industries. The study adopts the competitiveness methodological approach and relies on econometric modelling of static and dynamic data on digital economy and technological readiness.
