Abstract: 

The present study is significant in that today export is considered one of the most important sources of foreign currency revenues. North Khorasan Province enjoys a high standing in Iran in terms of export potentials. This study seeks to identify and rank both export obstacles and export development strategies. To achieve these aims, we employed a questionnaire-based survey. In addition, to rank obstacles and strategies, we employed the Friedman test, and to analyze the data and research hypotheses, we employed the Kruskal–Wallis test (SPSS).The analyses show that, according to exporters, major export obstacles in order of decreasing importance are: 1) constant fluctuations in interest and foreign exchange rates, 2) absence of strategic plans for penetrating foreign markets, and 3) absence of global thinking among company managers. Also, major export development strategies according to exporters, in order of decreasing importance, are: 1) adequate land, water and air transportation, 2) technical skills and knowhow for the production of high quality, exportable products, and 3) advanced banking and communication infrastructures in the country.
