The Relationship among Exports, Imports and Economic Growth in Turkey

Sayef Bakari () and Mohamed Mabrouki ()

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: This paper studies the nexus between exports, imports, and economic growth in Turkey. Annual data for the periods between 1960 and 2015 was tested by practicing Johansen co-integration analysis of Vector Auto Regression Model and the Granger-Causality tests. According to the result of the analysis, there is no relationship between exports, imports and economic growth in Turkey. On the other hand, we found that there is a strong evidence of bidirectional causality from imports to economic growth and from exports to economic growth.
