This study includes an econometric analysis of the export demand behaviour by using Turkey's annual data that cover 32 years periods from 1970 to 2002. In the study, the 'bounds test' method of Pesaran et al (2001) was used to investigate the long run relationship between export demand, and its determinants, namely income and relative prices. As a result of this empirical analysis, it was demonstrated that export volume, income and relative prices were cointegrated. The estimated long term elasticities of export demand with respect to income and relative prices are 0.21 and -1.684, respectively. The sum of the elasticities of import and export demand exceeds one (-1.01) i.e., Marshall-Lerner condition holds. These results show that monetary, fiscal and exchange rate policies may be used as substitutive policies to correct unfavourable trade balance.
