Tariff Reform and Product Market Integration in Developing Countries: The Case of Zambia

Wednesday, 8 July, 2015
Abstract: 
This project investigates the extent and determinants of intra-national product market integration using a price approach in the context of Zambia, a low-income and landlocked country in Sub-Saharan Africa. The results show substantial within-country market segmentation, which is affected by both internal and external factors such as transportation costs, product-specific characteristics, location and tariff reforms.
