Globalisation is the interconnection between counties through the expansion of foreign trade and foreign investment. It is the process of integrating the home country with foreign countries through the movement of goods, services, investment, technology and people. Information and Communication Technology (IT) is an important driving force for the success of globalisation.
Telecommunication facilities, especially the internet has significantly contributed to the success of globalisation. The development of services like e-banking has increased the pace in which transactions are carried out around the world. Today, the world is just a click away. IT has facilitated and improved communication, lowered the cost of transportation thus helping to transport goods to other countries cheaply and has ensured more co-operation among firms through increased networking. It has contributed to the development of advanced technology of production and their transmission throughout the world. The development of financial and logistic services is the main carrier of an improved globalised world. The establishment of call centres and other allied services in other countries has also contributed to growth in the service sector. Sophisticated technologies help in instant communication throughout the world thus making globalisation a success story.
