Abstract: Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) are becoming a global necessity to achieve milestones in a smarter and accurate way.

The aim of this research is how those countries can benefit from ICTs as a strong pillar to take their economies to a next level. Although, the case study is focused significantly on the Republic of Rwanda, the same approach can be used as well to other countries in the same range of economic classification, probably with slight changes according to the respective country of application. The used method is qualitative and quantitative approaches of the descriptive methodology, whereby the researcher based on data got from answered questions by the monitoring and evaluation teams of both MYICT and National Institute of Statistics of Rwanda (NISR) to assess the effectiveness of Information and communication technologies as a perfect tool for economic growth in Rwanda.
