EXCHANGE RATE RISK and INTERNATIONAL TRADE: SURVEY RESULTS on TURKISH FIRMS

This study investigates the relationship between exchange rate risk and international trade for Turkish firms. Different from earlier studies, we examine responses to a survey. We find that firms are aware of exchange rate risk, which is mainly caused by the movements in Euro and USD, and protect themselves through natural hedging or price adjustments.
