The impact of trade and exchange-rate policy reforms on North African manufactured exports

Abstract: Three indicators capture the impact of exchange-rate policy in fostering manufactured exports from North Africa: changes in the real effective exchange rate (REER), its volatility, and its misalignment. The impact of trade policy is examined using a trade liberalisation indicator. Export supply equations are estimated for three manufacturing industries: textiles, chemicals, and food. The results suggest that trade and exchange-rate policies matter for export performance, as is evidenced by the negative influence exerted independently by real exchange-rate misalignment and volatility and by the positive influence of trade liberalisation.
