This paper examines the effect of exchange rate gap (difference between official and parallel market rates) on economic growth in Iran during 1961-2007 based on the Error Correction Model.

So, adopting a suitable exchange rate policy to adjust the real exchange rate may have an important role to increase output capacity and achieving higher economic growth.
