Abstract


In this article we aim, on the one hand, to show how quality standards can contribute to dissemination and stimulation of innovation. On the other hand, we propose an econometric model, based on Solow growth model, to test the impact of the stock of quality standards and innovation, measured by the stock of patents, on economic growth. The model thus proposed is applied to data from processing industries in Morocco. The results show a significantly positive effect of the stock of quality standards on the economic growth of this sector.

Author Keywords: Quality standards, innovation, economic growth, Solow growth model, processing industries.


Abstract: (french)


Dans cet article nous visons d’abord, à montrer comment les normes qualité peuvent contribuer à la diffusion et à la stimulation des innovations. Puis, nous proposons un modèle économétrique, basé sur le modèle de croissance de Solow, pour tester l’impact du stock des normes qualité d’une économie et l’innovation, mesurée par le stock des brevets, sur la croissance économique. Le modèle ainsi proposé est appliqué aux données des industries de transformation au Maroc. Les résultats obtenus montrent un effet significativement positif du volume du stock des normes qualité sur la croissance économique de ce secteur.

Author Keywords: Norme qualité, innovation, croissance économique, modèle de croissance de Solow, industries de transformation.
