The study sought to determine effect of real effective exchange rate on economic growth in Ghana using annual data from 1984 to 2014. Data was sourced from the databases of World Bank, Bank of Ghana annual bulletins, and Ghana Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning. Using the ARDL cointegration estimation technique, the study found that real exchange rate and economic growth are cointegrated. The result suggests that real exchange rate exerts a positive and statistically significant effect on economic growth in both the long-run and short-run. Thus, there is the need to ensure exchange rate stability in the Ghanaian economy to help boost economic growth.
