Abstract: 
One of the effective factors in identifying the export potentials of a country for implementing the appropriate trade policy is the existence of comparative advantage in production and export of the commodities. The idea is simply the fact that the countries, due to their comparative advantage in the production of goods will enter to the scene of international trade and will exchange commodities.
To measure the comparative advantage, different kind of indexes has been introduced by economists among which that of Ballasa andVollrath could be mentioned. In this paper we investigate the "revealed comparative advantage" for the products of the Iranian Petrochemical Industry using the above mentioned index.
The results show that Iran gains comparative advantage in exporting the products of petrochemical industry. The share of these exports from the whole manufacturing exports of the country, based on the papers calculation results, is shown to be increasing.
