Doctoral Project:

Econometric modeling of the export potential of the Republic of Uzbekistan

The title of the dissertation is “Econometric modeling of the export potential of the Republic of Uzbekistan”.

Determination of economic factors affecting formation of exports in Uzbekistan, and their reflection in econometric models of analysis and forecasting of exports has both scientific and practical significance. The aim of the thesis is to build several econometric models of export and their empirical verification on the data of foreign trade of Uzbekistan. These models, after proper econometric validation, can serve as tools to take into account the effects of export on Uzbekistan’s growth. Econometric modeling of international trade was carried out by J. Tinbergen, J. Anderson, E. Winkop and others. They developed so-called gravity approach to the analysis and forecasts of export. The widespread use of dynamic econometric models is due to the discoveries in econometrics by R. Engle, C. Granger, D. Hendry and S. Johansen. Subsequently, C. Sims used vector autoregression in econometric analysis and gave impetus to the further development of macroeconometrics. The IMF has developed models for forecasting exports and imports, which include the main factors affecting the volume of exports and imports. At the same time, certain aspects of econometric forecasting of exports in developing countries, in which the export of primary goods prevails, remain insufficiently developed.

The research looks at the set of indicators of the export of the Republic of Uzbekistan, and tries to study the factors affecting them. The research tasks include the following: (i) to systematize the theoretical tools of economics in the analysis of international trade and export policy, (ii) to review a foreign practice in the field of export-oriented policy, (iii) to systematize the econometric tools used for the analysis of export potential and policy, (iv) study of the dynamics and structure of exports in the Republic of Uzbekistan with the identification of their most significant factors, (v) construction of econometric models of export of the Republic of Uzbekistan, (vi) development of a methodology for empirical verification of econometric models of export, (vii) analysis of the scale of the reaction of export volumes to changes in various factors, (viii) development of recommendations for the practical use of the estimated models for assessing the consequences of economic policy decisions. The practical results of the research are expected to be the scenario forecasts of changes in export volume and potential depending on changes in various parameters and the recommendations for the government on the effective formation of export-oriented policy. The values ​​of elasticities obtained in the research allow predicting changes in export volumes based on changes in various parameters. The specified elasticities can be used both in other studies and to analyze the consequences of various trade and economic decisions
