Forecasting is very helpful tool for making decisions and plans for upcoming time periods. In this study Seasonal Auto Regressive Integrated Moving Average (SARIMA) and Artificial Neural Networks (ANN) models are used to forecast the Pakistan’s import prices of black tea by using data for the time period Jan 2004 to Dec 2014. The performance of SARIMA and ANN models are evaluated on the basis of root mean square error (RMSE), mean square error (MSE) and mean absolute error (MAE). The selected model under Box-Jenkins is SARIMA (0, 1, 1)*(0, 1, 1)12. ANN models with different combination of input, hidden and output layers were tested with four activation functions (semi linear, sigmoid, bipolar sigmoid and the hyperbolic tangent function). This study reveals that ANN model performed well as compare to SARIMA model because RMSE, MAE and MSE of ANN model are less as compare to RMSE, MAE and MSE of SARIMA model. Therefore, ANN can be effective for forecasting the Pakistan’s import prices of black tea. Key Words: SARIMA, ANN, Black Tea, RMSE, MSE, MAE.
10The Environmental Kuznets Curve (EKC) Hypothesis for Greenhouse Gas Emissions: Analysis for Saudi Arabia

This paper empirically investigates the Environmental Kuznets Curve (EKC) hypothesis validation for GHGs emissions over the period 1980-2010 in Saudi Arabia. It examines the relationship between economic growth and environmental quality by using the Ordinary Least Squares (OLS) regression for two types of GHGs namely: CO2 emissions and other GHG emissions (HFC, PFC and SF6); the gases in brackets are termed other GHG emissions for ease of discussion in this study. The results showed that the EKC hypothesis is not valid for either CO2 emissions or other GHG emissions in Saudi Arabia. Even though there is an inverted U-shape for both models, the turning point is very high compared with GDP in that period. Thus, Saudi Arabia needs to implement new policies by adopting new technologies that could support the technical effect, which contributes to improving the environmental quality or raising the current source efficiency, in order to achieve sustainable development in the future. Key Words: CO2 Emissions, Other GHG Emissions, EKC, OLS Regression, Turning Point.
