The purpose of this paper is to investigate the relationship between trade and financial openness and economic growth in Turkey. For this purpose for the period of 1990:1-2006:4, the relationships between trade and financial openness rates and real economic growth rate are analyzed econometrically by employing multivariate cointegration analysis, error correction-augmented Granger causality tests and vector error correction model. According to the results, economic growth is positively effected by trade openness, and negatively by financial openness in the long run. Error correction-augmented Granger causality tests show that there is bi-directional causality between trade and financial openness and economic growth. Furthermore, it is observed that one-directional causality exists from trade openness to financial openness.
