Abstract

In this paper, we analyze the relationship between international trade and economic growth, from the point of view of one of the most traditional hypothesis within this field, namely, the export-led growth hypothesis. To this end, we apply Grangercausality tests, in a cointegration framework, to data on exports and GDP of the eight CEECs that became members of the EU in 2004.
