Agricultural value chains and structural transformation in Senegal: A product space approach
Using the product-space approach and BACI dataset for the period 1995-2014, we analyze the role of agricultural value chains selected under Agricultural Policy Support Project (PAPA) in Senegal’s structural transformation process. Overall, our findings suggest that the dynamics of economic complexity index (ECI) has been rather volatile throughout the period. Simulations results suggest that exporting only non-processed agricultural products, even with Revealed Comparative Advantage (RCA), is not enough to substantially boost the country structural transformation process.
