THE EFFECT OF EXCHANGE RATE FLUCTUATION ON-THE-NIGERIA MANUFACTURING SECTOR-1986-

 

 

ABSTRACT

This paper examines the effect of exchange rate fluctuations on the Nigerian manufacturing sector during a twenty-five (25) years period (1986 – ). The argument is that fluctuation in exchange rate adversely affects the output of the manufacturing sector. This is because Nigerian manufacturing is highly dependent on import of input and capital goods.

The methodology adopted for this study is empirical. The econometric tool of regression was used for the . The population target of this study is the total number of 25 years from (1986 – ) (25) annual time series as data relating to other years after are not available.

The used in this study is the secondary source of data. The data to be utilized in this study we be sourced through library research, publications of the Central Bank of Nigerian (CBN) i.e. statistic bulletin, al Bureau of Statistic(NBS), on line information and economic journals.

Some recommendations for policy were made based on the findings. Amongst others is the need to strengthen the link between agriculture and manufacturing’s sector through sourcing of raw materials thereby reducing reliance of the sector on import of input to a reasonable level
