... A large number of studies have used the production function approach, in which infrastructure stocks, e.g., road, rail, energy, and telecom indicators, entered as explanatory variables [29][30][31][32][33]. We followed the same approach and utilized the Cobb-Douglas type of production function that describes the relationship using the endogenous growth theory as follows: ...

The study aims to analyze the impact of China–Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) logistics-related developments on economic growth in Pakistan. The study defined a Cobb–Douglas type of research framework in which the country’s real income level relates to four factor inputs, e.g., employed labor force, logistics development, financial development, and energy consumption in an economy. The study utilized the time series data set for the period 1972–2018. To estimate the long run relationship and short run adjustment mechanism, the study used Johansen’s method of co-integration and error correction model. Estimated results showed that the country’s logistics developments have a significant positive impact on economic growth in both the long run and the short run. It implies that China–Pakistan collaborative efforts for logistics developments will have a strong positive impact on economic growth in Pakistan.

The article focuses on the current state of the logistics sector in Azerbaijan and the prospects for its development. In this regard, the article assesses the role of logistics in the development of the country's economy, as a sphere of non-oil sector. It is noted, that the geographical position of Azerbaijan allows the regular increase of trade volumes. The development of trade depends on the development of the logistics sector. According to statistical data on the transport sector of the State Statistical Committee of Azerbaijan, the dynamics of cargo transportation and passenger transportation on the rail, offshore, highways and airways in the country are analyzed and the situation for the last eight years is assessed. The role of main pipelines and international transport corridors in the economic development of Azerbaijan is also appreciated. Azerbaijan joins these transport corridors as an interregional transit center. It is shown, that those main pipelines and international transport corridors will serve not only the distribution of Azerbaijan, but also the economies of the region and the European countries. It will also contribute to the formation of competitive markets and will continue to maintain its relevance for a long time. Based on the Strategic Roadmap for the development of logistics and trade in Azerbaijan Republic, the SWOT analysis of the logistics sector has been given in the country and has shown the perspective strengths that will contribute to the economic development. Also highlighted are the weaknesses that are important to improve. The possibilities of this area and the dangers that may arise are investigated. Strategic considerations and targets for the development of the logistics sector in Azerbaijan by 2020 and 2025, as well as after 2025 are assessed, the importance of the role of the implemented and planned projects in the development of the economy of the country, the region, and in the economy of the strategic partner countries is substantiated.

Despite macro‐economic predictions of economic catch‐up and steady‐state economic growth for all countries, in the long run, the gap between advanced and developing African countries is widening. This study investigates the association between logistics and economic growth in 32 African countries from 2007 to 2018. The results show that five of the six logistics performance indicators, under review, have weak positive economic growth effects, ranging between 0.01 and 0.03. Relatively high economic growth effects emerge from the “competence and quality of logistics” indicator. This research highlights that the growth potential in African countries depends on improvements in logistics performance and that prioritising investments to improve logistics efficiency can improve long term growth and development in Africa. Practitioners and policymakers can use the results of this study to target and prioritise specific logistics indicators based on the magnitude of their impact on economic growth.
