1.4              BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

Government adopts various economic policies which  are implemented in the economy in order to influence economic activities. In doing this, the aim of the government is to achieve some target considered desirable for the economy. Usually, such economic included the monetary designed to achieve macro- economic stability and even to promote economic growth (Ogbonna 1997).

            Anyanuwokoro (1999; 163) defines monetary policy as a combination of measures designed to regulate the value, supply and the cost of money in an Economy.

Since the early 1980’s, many developing countries have been witnessing deterioration in their balance of payment partly because of huge foreign trade deficits. Consequently, these  countries including Nig have adopted various monetary policies in order to finance their foreign trade instead of restoring to foreign borrowing (Onah, 1997. 16).

            In Nigeria, the monetary policy measure aim at reducing inflationary pressure, strengthen the exchange rate of the naira improve the balance of payment position and increase foreign exchange inflow for the financing of foreign trade (Nwankwo 1998).

Prior to the introduction of the structural adjustment programme (SAP) in the second – half of the 1980’s the Federal Government adopted a policy of trade liberalization and encouraged massive importation of goods and services. To this end, the monetary policy in operations facilitated foreign trade through adequate foreign exchange constraints and the over-valuation of the naira led to the introduction of structural Adjustment programme  (SAP) which severely affected foreign trade financing (Ekamem 2001).

            For most of the 1990’s trade and exchange policy measure reflected prudent monetary policies. The operations of the domiciliary account scheme was to encourage foreign  exchange inflation, stop subsidized funding of post second-tier foreign exchange market transaction and grant more fiscal concession on exports. So far, there has been persistent pressure on the balance of payment and this calls for an investigation into the role of monetary policies in this connection. It is against this background that this study is set to examine the impact of monetary policies on foreign trade financing.
