An empirical evaluation of trade potential in the economic community of West African States
Ogunkola, Olawale E.

Intra-ECOWAS trade has remained very low despite the integration efforts in the subregion in the past two decades. While noting that these efforts have not progressed as scheduled, this study investigates what the West African countries stand to gain by way of increases in intra-regional trade flows if all trade barriers are removed. The study uses a gravity model whose results suggest that there is trade potential in the subregion.
