However, exporting countries and importing nations trace the enormous problems or exchange rates fluctuations. In this work an attempt have been made to examine the impact of exchange rates fluctuations and balance of payment (export position) in Nigeria. This is study was carried out through the use of a questionnaire, Oral, interviews and secondary data.
It was found that there is a positive relationship between foreign exchange earnings and volume of imports in Nigeria that the importers do not think favourable of the structural adjustment programme and some Bank do not pay interest on the delayed export proceeds of FEM deposit account. Based on the findings we re commend that government should intervene to the foreign regulation of the sharp fluctuations in the foreign exchange market by improving the real productive sector of the economy. The apex bank should punish severely banks who do not repatriate export proceeds.

The historical development of international trade can be dated as back the period of world war 1 (1914-1918).
Though world trade was heavy during world I, that world depression of the 1930’s greatly brought a decline in world trade.

As a result of international trade rule now have both a greater amount and a greater variety of goods to consume. The growth of international trade has gone hand in hand with technological improvements in productions and with development in transportation. These advances have made possible the large increase in the volume and variety of goods produced and traded factories turn out large quantities of commodities which are not only consumed locally, but are immediately distributed to different parts of the world improvement in transportation and the expansion of world markets have made possible this large and economic production.
