Nowadays, countries realize that without having knowledge and technology, they may not export advantaged goods to the global market. Generally, technology and knowledge accumulation play vital role for reaching high economic growth rate and economic development. The statistical reports show that Iran has not been successful in the high-tech export area; Base on those reports, Iran’s high-tech exports were around 550 million dollar in 2011 and this situation indicates a small share of high-tech exports in Iran’s total exports and poor state of Iran in the global high-tech exports. So it is needed to examine the factors which critically affect the high-tech exports. Therefore, this paper by using a panel data econometrics model which includes 51 developed and developing countries, and covers 1996-2008, has examined the effective factors in high-tech exports. The article has concluded research and development expenditure, foreign direct investment, real effective exchange rate, economic openness, learning index and economic growth rate affect high-tech exports.
