ABSTRACT
This paper investigates the direction of causality between exchange rate and trade (exports and imports) for a developing country like Pakistan, utilizing the monthly time series data covering the period 1995-2006. Cointegration and causality tests were conducted to assess the link between trade and exchange rate. The results of Johansen-Juselius (JJ) cointegration tests indicate that there is one cointegrating vector between exchange rate, exports and imports. However, an important finding of this empirical research is that there is a strong and stable relationship between exports and imports, and the causality is bidirectional. This study also rejects previous findings about negative effect of exchange rate volatility on trade volume in a developing economy like Pakistan.
