As a result, the data indicated the evidence of structural break and alternating elasticities’ signs in estimations based upon error component model. After Before Turkey being the member of the ECU a percentage increase in all the relative foreign income, Turkish TOT, real exchange simultaneously and a unit increase in trend is found improving decreasing the relative trade about 0.135 0.78 percentage in total.
