"Trade policy reform and rural poverty in Nigeria"
by Philip, Omoke

The standard theoretical comparative static analysis of national gains from international trade emphaszes the economic benefits from productions specialisations and exchange so as to exploit comparative advantage in situations where a nations costs of productions and/or preference differs from those in the rest of the world. Since it is demostrated that nations gains from trade , it is imperative to examine the implications of such opening up for growth and hence poverty and inequality.
This study will therefore examine the impact trade policy reform(Tariff reform and currency devaluations) on rural poverty and inequality in Nigeria using a computable equilibrium framework. Specifically it will examine s the rural inequality implications of gradual phasing out of import dutied(trade liberalisation) and a market determined exchange rate regime.The study will evaluate the impact of trade liberalisation on rural real wage and rural real income. The impact of domestic currency devaluation on domestic import price will be examined.
conclusions and policy recommendations will be drawn from the result of the study.
