Abstract

Economic integration in WAEMU is manifested among others policies, by tariffs reductions in order to reinvigorate economic and trade relationshiph between member countries. This study show that the first trade agreement establish after WAEMU creation, has contributed to reduce per capita income disparities in WAEMU. So we show that this south-south trade agremment is profitable for these countries. Beyond the fact that there is significant convergence process among theses countries, I show that the steady state is not unique. There are three convergence clubs in WAEMU. One of them is formed by the richest countries. Those countries converge in their club so does'nt the others. These promote living conditions improvement in the wole WAEMU.
