The paper explicitly study the relationship that exist between economic growth and trade liberalization in Nigeria, previous research that was done in Nigeria on the same subject gave an interpretation of regression results of export trade variable that supports trade liberalization as a medium for measures that were ignored like import (Obadan, 2015) . The research included variables like Imports, Inflation, Export, Foreign Direct Investment and Exchange Rate. The methodology used was ordinary least square (OLS). Results acquired show positive connection between trade liberalization and Economic Growth, but inflation is an exception the connection between economic growth and inflation is negative. The effective relationship that other variables has with GDP shows that when the level of trade liberalization is increasing it benefits the economy of Nigeria (Mtengwa, 2014). The outcome is straightforward coming from different levels of economic growth and trade liberalization. Which brought about a conclusion that the link between economic growth and trade liberalization is positive.
