The study findings showed that exports earnings from cotton; fish and GDP have each
been increasing due to high quality of fish in the international markets and increase in
production respectively, though with some fluctuations, while exports earnings from
coffee have been unpredictable~ This could be due to susceptibility of coffee to natural
disasters like floods, drought and other factors such as oil prices, security and
international policies affecting exports. A simple linear regression analysis shows a
positive relationship between cotton, coffee, fish with the values of (R2=O~857, 0.241,
0.394) and GDP respectively indicating a direct relationship between GDP and exports
