Formatted abstract This thesis searches for a relationship between the real trade balance and two alternative indices of competitiveness. Due to the absence of any recent known application of econometric evidence using Australian data, this thesis introduces the concept of cointegration into the study of real exchange rate effects· on trade balance adjustment.

Using the real effective exchange rate and a ratio of relative domestic prices as indices of competitiveness, it is found that both measures of the real exchange rate are not cointegrated with the balance of trade.
