抄録: The use of Information Technology (IT) in Asia has grown rapidly in recent years. Yet the United Nations claims that not everyone is benefiting from the IT revolution and that there is now a new type of poverty, information poverty, that is taking shape. This paper deals with the digital divide and its economic implications in Asia. It is believed that access to IT can serve as a good tool to help the economies of developing countries of Asia, particularly the rural areas where the majority of the population resides. IT can bring benefits and opportunities to the rural population who is often marginalized. The first part of the paper aims to confirm the digital divide at the global, regional and national levels. The second part analyzes the implications of digital divide on the rural economy. The last part examines the various measures adopted in Asia to correct the digital gap including some case models. Hopefully, these experiences would be useful to policy makers in many developing countries in bringing IT to as many of their population as possible and getting all the possible benefits from its use.
