This thesis was based on net export and Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of Burundi. The
research was guided by three objectives, that is, (i) to evaluate the level of net exports in Burundi
from 2003 — 2012. (ii) To assess the level of economic growth in Burundi from 2003 to 2012.
(iii) to find out if there is a significant relationship between net exports and economic growth in
Burundi from 2003 -2012.The study hypothesis was that there is no relationship between net
export and GDP growth rates in Burundi (2003—2012)” Therefore time series analysis such
Correlation and regression analysis were used in analyzing data. The study set to investigate the
levels of net exports and GDP rates and finally the relationship between net exports and
economic growth rate of Burundi. The results were that the level of net exports over the period of
10 years recorded a negative result (deficits) with the trend registering ups and downs were in
some years the net export negative value was reduced. The prevalence of the negative net export
in Burundi is associated to low levels of exports and high importation mainly due to low
industrialization and the agricultural (raw material exports). The economic growth rate of
Burundi was poor with only single digit growth. Results indicate that the peak of the trend was in
2006, where the economy experienced the highest GDP rates, in 2003 1.2 deductions were
Bivirate Pearson correlation indicates 0.166 level of significance. Since (0.05 <0.166) ,the
researcher therefore accept the null hypothesis and conclude that there is no relationship between
net export and gross domestic product in Burundi in the years 2003—20 12, the ANOVA test
found out the value of F, 2.325 is larger than the value of significance, 166. Therefore, the null
hypothesis is accepted confirming that there exist a relationship between GDP and net exports in
Burundi during the period of 2003 -2012. Finally the analysis of coefficients of variance display
the levels of significances as (.0571 and .166) respectively implying that null hypothesis is
accepted and confirms that there exist no relationship between net export and GDP growth rate
in Burundi from the year 2003 to 2012. The study therefore answered the question raised by
concluding that there is no relationship between net export and GDP rates in Burundi in 2003 to 2012.
