Exports-Led Growth Hypothesis in Pakistan: Further Evidence

Muhammad Shahbaz Akmal, Khalil Ahmad and Muhammad Ali

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: This paper examines the exports-led growth hypothesis using quarterly data from 1990 up to 2008 for Pakistan. In doing so, ARDL bounds testing approach, Error Correction Method (ECM) and Ng-Perron test for integration have been employed. The empirical findings show that exports are positively correlated with economic growth. This confirms the validity of exports-led growth hypothesis in the case of Pakistan both for short run and long span of time. Exchange rate depreciation declines economic growth while running real capital stock improves it.
