While Marshal/-Lerner condition has shown a theoretical relationship between exchange rates and trade balance, previous empirical result evidence gave mixed results on the impact of exchange rates on trade balance.

However, in Singapore. the exchange rate has positive relationship but insignificant with trade balance. While in Thailand, the exchange rate has a positive weak relationship with trade balance and it has a weak impact on trade balance.
