The purpose of this study was to investigate the mutual interaction between corruption and agricultural export variations with using corruption perception index, exchange rate and gross domestic product affect. Study, centers the Gambia country, but her neighbour and competitive countries in order to make comparisons. Study constructs a multinominal logit model to analyze the determinants of agricultural export variations and depends on panel data belongs to six Sub-Saharan African countries. Study shows that, the corruption perception index had a probality on agricultural export. Value of corruption production index in the previous year was likely to contribute to the current agricultural export of Sub-Saharan Africa countries. Increases at Gross Domestic Product provide benefits to agricultural export in parallel with corruption perception index. Policy makers, trade sector, business and civil society movements and governmental approaches have significance on preventing corruption climate atmosphere. To the best of authors knowledge, this study constitutes the first attempt to build a theoretical framework to explore how the interactions between determinants of agricultural export variations and corruption inflluence.
Bu çalışmanın amacı, yozlaşma yüzdesi indeksi, döviz kuru ve Gayri Safi Milli Hasıla parametrelerini kullanarak yozlaşma ve tarımsal ihracat değişkenleri arasındaki karşılıklı etkileşimleri araştırmaktır. Çalışma, Gambiya ülkesini odağa almakta ancak karşılaştırma yapabilmek amacıyla rekabet halinde olunan komşu ülkeleri de ele almaktadır. Çalışma, altı Sahraaltı Afrika ülkesini, panel data değerlerine dayanarak, tarımsal ihracat değişkenlerinin belirleyicilerini analiz etmek amacıyla multi-nominal logit model kurmaktadır. Sonuçlar, yozlaşma değer indeksinin tarımsal ihracat üzerinde belirli oranlarda etkisi olduğunu göstermektedir. Önceki yıllardaki yozlaşma üretim indeks değerlerinin, Sahraaltı Afrika ülkelerinin mevcut yıldaki tarımsal ihracatını etkilediği görülmektedir. GSMH’deki artışlar, yozlaşma oranı indeksine paralel olarak tarımsal ihracata fayda sağlamaktadır. Bu noktada, politika yapıcılar, ticaret sektörü, iş ve sivil toplum hareketleri ve çeşitli hükümet yaklaşımları yolsuzluk atmosferinin önlenmesinde önem taşımaktadır. Bu kapsamda çalışma, tarımsal ihracat ve yozlaşma etkileşiminin nasıl olduğunu keşfetme ve teorik bir çerçeve oluşturma noktasında ilk örneği oluşturmaktadır.
