By using of this model (econometrics and Panel Data Model), the changes in trade among the included countries and among these countries and other countries in the world during 1995-2006 were investigated. The results of the study showed that the trade potential of Iran and economic integration of the countries include in the regional bloc of south west Asia in bilateral trade was 61 percent which showed that the integration of this bloc was positive and weak and stated that the amounts of the current bilateral trade among them were increased.
