Abstract
Exchange rate regimes is an important factor for developing countries´ export performance. There are a wide range of exchange rate regimes, varying from more flexible regimes like free floating to fixed regimes like a peg to another currency. This paper is a contribution to the research on how development countries´ exchange rate regimes affect their export performance.

This essay is also a replication study of earlier research examining the same question, made by Nilsson and Nilsson (2000). By running a regression based on the so-called gravity model, the results indicates that a peg to the US dollar gives the highest positve effect on the developing countries export volume. In Nilsson and Nilsson´s study this regime did not performe... (More)

In Nilsson and Nilsson´s study this regime did not performe as well and is therefore the biggest differance between our studies. However, in accordance with Nilsson and Nilsson´s (2000) results, I also found that more flexible exchange rate regimes performed well in my study. (Less)
