Abstract:
This paper investigated the impacts of exchange rate on exports in Namibia for the period 1991:Q1 to 2014:Q4. Time series techniques such as unit root test, cointegration and Autoregressive Distributed Lag (ARDL) techniques were applied. The results on the unit root tests show that the variables are integrated of order zero and one, meaning they are stationary in level and first difference. The bound testing approach for cointegration reveal that there is no cointegration among exports, exchange rate, exports relative price, real gross domestic product and foreign direct investment. Therefore, the differenced ARDL long run function is estimated. The study concludes that there is a positive relationship between exchange rate and exports in Namibia.
