ABSTRACT

This work sets out to examine the relationship between balance of payment and

exchange rate. The work is divided into five chapters; chapter 1 gives a general

introduction to the subject matter, chapter two gives the general review of literature

in the subject matter, chapter 3 gives or states the methodology and specifies the

model used for testing. Chapter four runs the required test and provides the result

as well as the interpretation and chapter five concludes the findings and

recommends policy for the government based on the findings in the test.The

ordinary least square regression (ols) method is used to test for R-squared test

(explanatory power of the variables), T-test for the reliability, F-test for the overall

significance of the exponentials and D.W test which is the econometric criterion

for testing for presence of auto regressive scheme. The result shows a negative

relationship between balance of payment and trade openness, also there exists a

positive relationship between exchange rate and foreign direct investment. Since

trade openness has a negative impact on the balance of payment it is recommended

that the government should not consider it a policy for economic development.TABLE OF CONTENT
