This study examined the impact of ICT on ﬁrm productivity in Indonesia. Using unbalanced panel data of medium and large manufacturing ﬁrms, we performed two kinds of estimation. The ﬁrst estimation is Cobb-Douglas production function with output as the dependent variable. Capital was grouped into non-ICT capital and ICT capital in order to determine the impact of ICT on ﬁrm’s output creation. The second estimation used total factor roductivity as the dependent variable, where TFP was estimated using Levinsohn-Petrin productivity estimator. As other internal and external factors were added to the regression as control variable, the study provides early evidence that while the impact of R&D and innovation still needs to be further elaborated, ICT capital may have a positive, but not always signiﬁcant, impact on ﬁrm’s production and productivity in Indonesia.
