Abstract [en]

Remittance flows to Sub-Saharan Africa is expected to increase by 3.3 percent, reaching $34 billion in 2017 according to the World Bank. This study examines the impact of remittances on economic growth in 36 countries in Sub-Saharan Africa. Specifically, this paper will investigate the relationship between GDP per capita growth and remittance. We have used secondary data which has been collected from the World Bank, between the years 1990 and 2012. By using Ordinary Least Squares (OLS) and simple linear regression estimation methods with country fixed-effects, the empirical results propose that remittance have a negative impact on economic growth in Sub-Saharan Africa.
