The aim of this study is to investigate the relationship between information and communication technologies and economic growth. Information communication technologies, which have a significant proportion in the world economy market, make it possible to attain economic markets more easily due to the developing infrastructure opportunities. Therefore, the importance given to the studies on information communication technologies is increasing day by day. In our study, the relationship between information communication technologies and economic growth for 15 OECD countries was analyzed by panel causality analysis and Smith et al. (2004) panel unit root methods are investigated. As a result of the analyzes, there is a causal relationship between the information communication indicators and economic growth, and their economic performances will contribute positively if these countries fulfil the deficiencies in the infrastructure investments related to information and communication technology and adopt and choose policies towards this.
