Based on the Augmented Solow’s growth model and using System-GMM Panel Estimator, the results show that, contrary to numerous claims elsewhere, trade in more technology-intensive industries implies a greater potential for sustained economic growth rates.
This finding implies that simply increasing the volume of exports may have been a necessary igniter of economic growth thus far, but it may not be a sufficient driver of long-run economic growth for Low-income African economies. The paper will be published in the Contemporary Economic Policy Journal.
