Abstract

The purpose of this research is to assess the effect of remittances on growth in Cameroon and Senegal, main beneficiaries respectively in CEMAC and UEMOA regions. The role played by institutions in the mecanism is highlighted through property right protection. Results indicates that a 1% increase in remittances leads 0,41% to a marginal increase in the GDP per capita growth in Senegal compared to 0.08% increase in Cameroon. Moreover, taking into account the protection of property right, it appears that the impact of a 1% increase in remittances on per capita GDP growth rise to 0.85% for Senegal and 0.21% for Cameroon respectively. We then recommend to Cameroonian authorities to improve property right protection which create more incentives for productive investments of remittances.
