Remittance inflows and economic growth in Rwanda

By: Edward Kadozi, PhD

This paper examines the impact of remittance inflows on economic growth in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) countries and Rwanda in particular for the period between1980 and2014. It explores whether the growth impact of remittances is conditional on the institutional and development factors in SSA countries. The analytical framework of this study is embedded in the debate between two dominant theoretical approaches about the growth effect of remittances; the national accounts and endogenous growth models.
