Abstract

This research examines the use and the effects of information and communication technology (ICT) on business performance and innovation in the Western Downs region in Queensland, Australia. There has been little research on the use of ICT by small and medium enterprises(SMEs) in remote and regional areas in Australia. This study therefore improves our understanding of that by using a unique dataset for approximately 300 SMEs collected through a field survey conducted in the Western Downs region during March to June 2014.
