    Abstract: The examination is expected to dissect the effect of financial arrangement factors on Egypt's securities exchange execution list from January 2010 to December 2019 utilizing the ARDL Approach. The examination found that the time arrangement of factors through the ADF test (Augmented Dickey-Fuller) test was Stationary When the main contrast. The limits test was performed ARDL Approach. to check the factors' trustworthiness over the long haul. The examination found a drawn outbalance connection between the financial exchange list in Egypt. What's more, the financial approach factors incorporate the unfamiliar swapping scale, cash supply, momentary loan cost, and swelling rate. The blunder remedy model (ECM) was utilized, and the estimation of its coefficient was negative and critical, which affirms the presence of a co-combination connection between the examination factors. The model's legitimacy was approved for assessment by utilizing the Serial relationship LM Test, the Heteroskedasticity Test, and the histogram - Normality trial of Residuals utilizing the Jaque - Bera test.

  • Relationship between Economic Growth, Energy Consumption and CO2 Emission: Panel Investigation from ASEAN Countries   Order a copy of this article
    by Sihabudin S, Candra Zonyfar 
    Abstract: The purpose of this study is to examine the impact of economic growth, energy consumption and some macro factors on CO2 emission in ASEAN countries. A time period of 2000 to 2017 is selected for the panel analysis of selected variables and units of observation. Both descriptive and panel regression models are applied. Econometric techniques cover OLS, fixed effect and random effect estimates through full sample consideration is observed. To conduct a comparison between fixed and random effect, Hausman test is applied. Findings of random effect model explains that economic growth, energy consumption and macro factors have their significant & positive influence on CO2 emission in ASEAN countries. HM test also favors for the random effect facts. As per the significance, this study covers both theoretical and empirical dimensions. Theoretical significance describes contribution in the literature from the context of selected region. Practical significance is reflected through provision of documentary evidence to the policy makers. Future research should add more variables like foreign investment, and pollution effect on CO2 emission with more time period.
    Keywords: CO2 emission; ASEAN; panel models; energy consumption; economic growth.

  • Modelling the number of client firms needed to support a new Science Park and the spacing between new Parks and existing Parks with similar themes.   Order a copy of this article
    by Charles Mondal, Adikhan Kussainov, Robert B. Mellor 
    Abstract: UK Science & Technology Parks (STPs) specialised in pharmaceutical areas were compared with universities scoring highly in pharmaceutical research and with firms returning the corresponding Standard Industry Classification (SIC) codes at Companies House. There was no correlation between the average distance between STPs and highly scoring universities and no evidence that high-ranking universities can attract specialised firms. The ability of STPs to attract specialised firms was investigated and on-campus STPs (within 2km of the university) were not significantly more successful or less successful than other STPs. To support a specialised STP, an average of 19.15 firms with a similar speciality was found within a 7.89 km radius. In the UK, STPs that are members of the Science Park Association (UKSPA) exist on average 12 km apart but STPs specialised in pharmaceuticals were much further apart, average 32.65 km and this difference is highly significant.
    Keywords: Science and Technology Parks; regional development; knowledge spillovers; university enterprise.
