Trading Partners and Iranian Manufactured Exports
Sedigheh Atrkar Roshan

This study is devoted to examine the performance of Iranian Manufactured exports in terms of their destination over the 1980-2006 period. Using time series techniques, an export demand model is applied and the income and price elasticities of demand for Iranian manufactured exports by country of destination are estimated. As after 1979, Iranian trading partners were diversified in the direction of more inter-LDCs. The applied export demand model is then simulated by the Newton technique. As it is assumed that trade flows respond to changes in relative prices and exchange rate, the magnitude of the response will then be investigated through a historical simulation. The empirical results demonstrate that trading partner`s income, real effective exchange rate along with commodity price do affect the Irans manufactured export demand. The findings of the historical simulation also suggest that, the size of changes in the endogenous variables is relatively smaller under the first Scenario, whereas the second policy Scenario causes exports to rise significantly. The estimation outcomes also emphasize the sensitivity of exports to a devaluation of domestic currency especially to LDCs.
