Croissance et convergence des pays de la zone CFA : une étude par les données de panel non stationnaires

Abstract : During the recent years, african countries in the CFA zone have experienced many economic changes on the one hand through the measures initiated by bilateral and multilateral donors and on the other hand through the economic and monetary integration policies. Thus, relying on the assumption that because of these interventions, the economic systems incorporate various phenomena such as structural change and economic interdependencies, we studied their major implications on growth, convergence and growth predictability. Emphasis is first placed on the major features of integration policies in a monetary union, while stressing the possible implications of such policies on the economic dynamics of member countries mainly in terms of econometric modelling of growth and convergence. The different studies conducted on the basis of appropriate econometric tools led to new results concerning the process of growth and convergence of these economies compared to those based on standard tools of econometric modelling. It is also clear from this study that the presence of common factors and structural breaks is strongly linked to integration policies implemented in the CFA zone. These results also indicate that shocks produce heterogeneous effects on economies with various dates of occurrence and that it is necessary to vary the policy responses from one country to another for sustainable and shared growth.
