An Import demand function for the Australian economy using vector autoregression techniques

Research output: Contribution to journalMeeting abstract


Purpose: To build a model that explains the determinants of Australia’s import demand, and to observe the predictions of this model by exposing it to various exogenous shocks. Originality: The approach is a vector error correction mechanism that has not been performed on Australian data to construct an import demand function. Export swill be included as an explanatory variable to establish this function for imports.
