Abstract: In order to test the export-driven growth hypothesis that exports are a key element in explaining economic growth, there are applied studies based on various methods for various countries, but this study draws attention to the differences in the results. However, the majority of these studies are at the national level. In this study aimed at testing the export-driven growth hypothesis in Turkey's economy at the regional level, the 2004-2017 Level 2 data were estimated with the System-GMM method. According to the results of the study, regional export contributes positively to regional income, and this hypothesis is supported at the regional level in Turkey.
