Empirical work of Jorgenson and al (2003), Timmer et al. (2003) showed that the development of new technologies was not always accompanied by an improvement of labour productivity. Under these conditions, it is essential to study the impact of the investment in ICT on the economic growth and employment in Senegal. Our methodology takes as a starting point the model of social account matrix multiplier, Pyatt and Round (1979), Defourny and Thorbecke (1984), and the multipliers derivation initiated by Thorbecke et al. (1996), aiming to measuring the possible externalities and impacts that investments on ICT generate on poverty reduction and jobs creation. The results highlight a significant effect of the ICT investment on growth, employment and poverty alleviation in Senegal.
