Abstract:
This study investigated the relationship between exchange rate and economic growth in Namibia. In particular, the study examined how exchange rate, interest rate and trade openness affects output growth. Time-series techniques such as unit root test, cointegration, generalized impulse response functions and generalized forecast error variance analysis were applied on quarterly data for the period 1993 to 2015, within the VAR framework. The results showed a positive relationship between exchange rate and economic growth in the short-run, but a negative relationship the two variables exchange rate and economic growth in the long-run
