Notes
  • Ce document analyse le rôle de la productivité globale des facteurs comme déterminant de la compétitivité des industries manufacturières sénégalaises. Il porte sur un panel de dix groupes d’industries manufacturières et couvre la période 1974-94. Après avoir estimé la fonction de production des industries manufacturières, le document identifie le rôle de l’investissement public, de la protection commerciale et du niveau de qualification de la main-d’œuvre utilisée par les différents secteurs dans l’évolution de la productivité globale des facteurs dans l’industrie. Une attention particulière est portée sur les économies externes comme source de gains de productivité et sur le rôle de l’investissement public comme facteur pouvant favoriser leur émergence. Les résultats montrent d’importantes disparités entre les industries manufacturières sénégalaises en ce qui concerne la progression de la productivité globale des facteurs.

Insufficient public investment in infrastructure and the high level of protectionism appear to plan an important role in the unfavourable evolution of productivity and ...
