Abstract

This paper shall examine the pros and cons of adopting the ECO in the WAMZ. The introduction of the ECO has the potential of enhancing trade within the WAMZ member states in the medium to long-term. However, the quest for a common currency must be driven by economic fundamentals, rather than political expediency. Consequently, there is need to ensure macroeconomic convergence and homogeneity of the financial and product markets before the ECO is introduced.
