Authors : Mohammed Touitou . Rimi Riadh .

Abstract

The principal focus of the study is to show the Economic Impact of Increasing the Production Efficiency Parameter in the Agriculture Sector on the Algerian Economy by using a computable general equilibrium Analysis. In this study, different types of simulation are also considered in order to test the response of the economy, for that we used two scenario. The principal objective of this simulation is to examine the linkages of agricultural productivity growth on non-agricultural sectors. Model results indicate that a shift in the scale parameter by 10 percent in the value added function pushes total output, exports, imports and consumption up. Increase in output and employment in the non-agriculture sector is also significant. The effects are more positive when tariff is removed.
