Abstract

This article analyses the relationship between international trade and economic growth from the point of view of one of the most traditional hypotheses within this field, namely, the export-led growth hypothesis. To this end, we apply Granger-causality tests, in a cointegration framework, to data on exports and GDP of the eight CEECs that became members of the EU in 2004. The results find some support for the export-led growth hypothesis only in the case of the Czech Republic, while no significant causality in any direction was found in the remaining cases.
