Abstract:
This paper tries to develop a model for the real exchange rate of Ethiopia .More specifically, the study attempts to examine whether Ethiopia ‘s real exchange rate is misaligned with respect to its /ong-run equilibrium level and answers such question as: (1) what are the constituent parts of the /ong-run equilibrium RER? (2) Which variables set the movement of the equilibrium real exchange rate? (3) Based on the
findings calculate the degree of misalignment and (4) what policy measures could be taken to rea/ign the real exchange rate with its equilibrium level. The empirical estimation results conclude that, terms of trade (TOT), external aid inflows (ODA), commercial policy stance (CPS), central bank reserve (CBR) and investment to GDP ratio were found to influence the /ong-run real exchange rate in the case of Ethiopia. However, variables such as nominal devaluation and real money supply are found to have no effect on the real exchange rate.
