Multilateral Trade Resistance, International Competitiveness and African International Exports: A Network Perspective Getachew Magnar Kitila & Fuzhong Chen

Multilateral Trade Resistance, International Competitiveness and African International Exports: A Network Perspective

Abstract

­

Understanding and interpreting trade flows between trading partners/countries requires knowing whether countries are hubs or peripherals in the global trade network. These network statistics have been included in the gravity model in recent empirical works in international trade, to capture the notion of multilateral trade resistance While the network statistics logically captures the third-country effect, the literature, especially in Africa, has mainly focused on bilateral effects between trading partners, neglecting the multilateral nature of trade.  Employing an Augmented gravity model, we estimated the effect of multilateral trade resistance/competition effect (Captured by the Clustering coefficient) and international competitiveness (captured by out-degree centrality) and importer openness (captured by in-degree centrality) on African international trade and found that these network statistics have robust and significant, but contrasting effects on African international trade flows. While an increase in degree variables increases African international trade flows on average, a higher clustering coefficient is found to have a negative impact on African export- which is consistent with the theory and our expectation. It is therefore advisable that the attention of African country exporters and policymakers should be geared towards encouraging the degree centrality and discouraging strong connection of African exporters within themselves to boost African international exports.

The effect of Systematic Risk Determinants on Domestic Investment in West African Economic Monetary Union (WAEMU) Aka Messouma C., AKA Messou J., & ZHANG Biqiong

The effect of Systematic Risk Determinants on Domestic Investment in West African Economic Monetary Union (WAEMU)

Abstract

­

Using panel data for eight West African Economic Monetary Union (WEAMU) nations spanning 12 years from 2005 to 2017. We investigate the impact of systematic risk variables on domestic investment from 2005 to 2017. The empirical data reveal that the currency rate and inflation have a considerable influence on domestic investment in these WEAMU nations. The exchange rate has a positive coefficient, which implies that other factors remain constant; a one-unit increase in the exchange rate increases domestic investment in WEAMU by US$3.79 million; and inflation has a negative coefficient, which implies that other factors remain constant; a one-percentage-point increase in the inflation rate decreases domestic investment in WEAMU by 62.56 percent. Political unrest and interest rates are insignificant. This requires the governments of the individual nations to stabilize inflation and currency rates in order to reduce the systemic risks that the financial industry faces.

Abstract

­

As evidenced by universal understanding and national laws, the marriage of 18-year-old girls is a global phenomenon affecting millions. Early marriage is a violation of human rights that deprives girls of the opportunity to receive a full education, to pay for welfare, to hold modern, mature, and ultimately to choose a life partner. Early marriage is driven by poverty and affects the well-being of young girls: increased risk of sexually transmitted infections, cervical growth, intestinal disease, stillbirths, and childbirth fistula. Early marriage has limited the development of a healthy child. The fetus is more likely to be born prematurely, such as newborns, newborns, or infants. If we want to end a marriage at an early age, we need to use social media strategies and programs, spread the word, attract local religious leaders, including guardians, and equip young women with education and employment.

The Impact of Risk Management on Banks’ Performance: A Case Study on the Banking Sector in the Republic of South Sudan Chol Paul Kur

The Impact of Risk Management on Banks’ Performance: A Case Study on the Banking Sector in the Republic of South Sudan

Author (s)

Chol Paul Kur

Abstract

­

The goal of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of risk management techniques employed by South Sudanese commercial banks. Using a contemporaneous mixed study methodology, information was gathered from purposely-sampled commercial banks. 5 point Linkert scale types of questionnaires were delivered to 56 respondents from chosen commercial banks. Questionnaires were the primary data gathering tool. The Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS V 16.0) was used to examine the data in major part, as well as distribution tables displaying frequencies and percentages. Tables have been created to display the findings. The key findings of this study project were that the majority of commercial bank employees strongly believed that risk management is an essential approach for managing a wide range of risks in a holistic manner and is critical in managerial decision making, influencing company performance. The study also discovered that risk management is now a must rather than a choice for commercial companies. Overall, the data indicate that South Sudanese banks are risk-averse. According to the report, it is critical for every successful commercial bank or financial institution to implement an ERM framework.

How Website Design Quality Affects Customers’ Purchase Intention

Author (s)

Adeba Anika Islam

Abstract

­

E-commerce is rapidly growing in today’s technology-driven world. In order to increase purchase intention in new online visitors and retain current customers, companies must ensure their e-commerce website is designed to maximize customer satisfaction and trust. However, there are several elements of website design quality that influence purchase intentions more strongly than others. This research attempts to synthesize the recent literature on the main determinants of website design quality that increase purchase intention. Consequently, the most significant determinants are transaction ease, visual design, information quality, social-cue, ease of navigation, service quality and security; their importance varying across industries. Among research conducted on e-commerce websites selling products, visual design has a more significant effect on customer satisfaction than information quality and service quality. The opposite is found to be true among empirical studies of e-commerce websites selling services. Transaction ease, social-cue, ease of navigation and security have a substantial impact on customer satisfaction and trust, regardless of whether the e-commerce website is offering products or services.

 Keywords: Website design, purchase intention, e-commerce, customer satisfaction, online trust.
