"Trade Policy Reform, Regional Integration and Export Performance in the ECOWAS Sub-Region"
by Babatunde, Musibau


Abstract
This study examined the impact of trade policy reform and regional integration on export performance in the ECOWAS sub-region adopting the gravity model. Based on results from a gravity model analysis, the result revealed that participation in preferential trade agreements within the ECOWAS sub-region is beneficial and trade-facilitating. In addition, the existence of artificial barriers to trade among ECOWAS countries negatively affects export performance. The study therefore concluded that unilateral trade barrier reductions and participation in preferential trade agreements can enhance export performance within the ECOWAS sub-region.
