Abstract


In this paper, we estimate the domestic resources cost coefficients (DRCC) in order to apprehend the major issues in terms of productivity in the manufacturing industry of Niger. The values of these indicators are, to a large extent, less than the unity (one) at the prevailing exchange rate between the CFA franc and the Naira during the study period. These results show, all things being equal, that the range of the DRCC is not very spread around the average, suggesting that it is possible to reallocate more efficiently the production factors to better orient the firms toward their comparative and complementary advantages.

Keywords: Economic incentives, Domestic resources cost coefficients (DRCC), Market price, Reference price, Comparative advantage, Complementary advantage.
