The mechanism of trade openness and inflation rate is a matter that many papers have ever attempted to verify. Providing evidence from different countries, negative and positive effects of openness on the inflation rate have been discovered. This paper examines the answer by applying an unbalanced static panel data method of estimation for Middle East and North African countries in the period of 1990- 2010. In contrast to Romer (1993) which presents a negative correlation between them, this paper explores that countries with more open degree of international trade are exposed to higher rate of inflation
