In this paper, we examined the relationship between the growth of the Gross Domestic Product of the United States, the export value index, and the export of Bangladesh over 37 years between 1980 and 2016. The results of our preliminary tests showed that there was indeed a long-run relationship between these variables. Based on our preliminary analysis, we employed an error-correction model to identify the relationship between the variables. The error-correction term with the expected negative sign was statistically significant, and it confirmed that in the case of disequilibrium, the convergence towards the equilibrium happened in the subsequent periods. Additionally, the econometric estimates exhibited that the two-period lagged values of the growth in export of Bangladesh and the growth of the Gross Domestic Product of the United States were also statistically significant.
