Abstract: 
The paper analyses the main determinants of the real exchange rate in Iran. The study employs cointegration analysis in estimating the long-run determinants of the real exchange rates for imports and exports.
The finding is that tariffs, productivity, resource balance, nominal exchange rate and investment share all influence the real exchange rate for imports and exports. The coefficients of adjustments are found to be -0.21, and -0.34 respectively for the real exchange rates for imports and exports. Policy makers attempt to defend an overvalued exchange rate by protectionist trade policies In fact, an overvalued exchange rate has often been the root cause of protection, and the country is unable to return to the more liberal trade policies that allow growth and integration into the world trading community without exchange rate adjustment.
