Model 1 depict an indirect relationship between gross domestic product (GDP), private loan (PL) and interest rate (int) to export trade volume while a direct relationship between Exchange rate (Exc) and Short-term letter of credit (SLC) to export as well. Model 2 shows exchange rate (Exc) and interest rate (int) a negative impact on import value of goods and services Nigeria, while the impact of gross domestic product (gdp), private loan (pl) and Short-term letter of credit (SLC) exert a positive effect. Thus, the impact of commercial banks shows a positive to international trade on the part of short term letter of credit granted to exporter and importer as well.
