It is widely recognized that information and communication technologies (ICTs) play a role in the sustainable development (SD) of a nation. Some argue that these technologies are a prerequisite for least developing countries (LDCs), and implicit assumptions are often made regarding the transfer of ICTs and SD. Based on a proposition that technology transfer positively influences SD, this article examines the relationship between technology transfer and SD, and provides information for policy improvement in two case studies of developing countries.
