Abstract

This paper examines exchange rate pass-through for the prices of imports and manufactured exports. It is found that, in the long run, exchange rate pass-through over the docks is complete for both classes of good. However, pass-through to import prices is more rapid than that to manufactured export prices. Also, evidence is presented of a substantial increase in pass-through to manufactured export prices in keeping with increased international integration.
