''Remittances and growth in Africa: Does financial development and institutional quality matter?''
( 2024, Vol. 44 No.1 )
 
 
This paper examines the influence of financial development and institutional quality in the relationship between remittances and economic growth for African countries over the period 2000-2020. By using a dynamic panel threshold model, the results show that there is a statistically positive relationship between remittances and economic growth above the threshold of 5.86%, above which remittances increase economic growth in African countries. This paper supports the view that remittances have a positive effect on growth only when the financial sector is strong and when there is a good institutional quality
