Export-led growth hypothesis: evidence from Papua New Guinea and Fiji
Purpose – This paper aims to examine the export-led growth hypothesis for Fiji and Papua New Guinea (PNG). Design/methodology/approach – The paper investigates the export-led growth hypothesis for Fiji and PNG who have been facing dismal economic growth performances over the last couple of decades. Findings – Findings of the study suggest that for Fiji there is evidence of export-led growth in the long-run, while for PNG there is evidence of export-led growth in the short-run. Originality/value – The findings of this paper have important messages for policy makers given that export sectors in both countries investigated are underdeveloped due mainly to a sustained period of political instability.
