Now, a study conducted by World Wide Worx has revealed that the Internet economy contributes up to R59-billion (or 2 percent) to South Africa’s gross domestic product (GDP). Moreover, this contribution is rising by around 0.1 percent a year, and will reach R79-billion by 2016, contributing up to 2.5 percent to South Africa’s GDP.
