The impact of air service agreement liberalisation : the case of Nigeria

The positive impact of air transport liberalization as suggested by economic theories and empirical studies has inspired many developing countries like Nigeria to liberalize some of its Air Service Agreements (ASAs). This paper seeks to examine the extent to which international air service liberalization has impacted upon Nigeria ten years after it was introduced. The research developed a cross-sectional model with passenger traffic as the dependent variable, while macroeconomic factors (trade and GDP), historical links, distance and ASAs served as independent or predictor variables. The analysis revealed a set of ASA stages in the country’s policy-making process.

OECD: Trade in goods and services forecast

Trade in goods and services forecast is defined as the projected value of change in ownership of material resources and services between one economy and another. Projections are based on an assessment of the economic climate in individual countries and the world economy, using a combination of model-based analyses and expert judgement. The indicator comprises net trade, imports and exports and export market growth. Net trade is the value of exports minus the value of imports; imports and exports are the value of goods and services imported or exported from other economies; export market growth measures the demand for a country’s exports constructed as a weighted average of import growth in all export destinations using export shares as weights. This indicator is measured in USD for net trade and in USD, 2010 prices for exports, imports and export market growth.

WTO accession, impediments to FDI, and the market opening of basic telecom services in China

This paper analyzes why no foreign direct investment (FDI) has entered basic telecom services in China despite relaxed government policies after the World Trade Organization (WTO) accession in 2001. A new indicator of barriers to FDI incorporating the policy and non-policy impediments has been developed with multiple sources of data including a first-hand survey and interview. Analytic hierarchy process has been applied to reduce arbitrariness in assigning weight to each impeding factor. Results indicate that there is no significant reduction in the actual level of openness to FDI in the sector over the past decade of post-WTO period, which is largely attributable to the recessive non-policy factors. Policy implications are discussed.
