Tékam Oumbé Honoré


This article seeks to study the effects of the development of the capital market and foreign direct investment (FDI) in the entrepreneurial process and economic growth. The technical methods used in this study are the panel-based dynamic estimation method of the Generalized Method of Moments (GMM) and the Calderon-Rossell model, in order to assess the relative impact of the development of capital markets on the entrepreneurial process in the CEMAC zone. The results show that capital market and capitalization initiatives can lead to an entrepreneurial process and economic growth in the CEMAC region. In addition, the incidence of corruption, the rule of law and the quality of the regulatory framework are identified as the most important institutional frameworks that determine the attractiveness of CEMAC countries to the inflow of FDI.
