Trade policy is one of the most important segments of a nation-state economic policy. The public policymaking in the segment includes developing long and mid-term plans to direct the decision making process on export، import and foreign investment in a country، by which businesses (either private or public) will be able to perfume more effective in international level and foreign marketplaces. On the other hand، in recent three decades globalization forces of economic، political and cultural scales have great impacts on the societies in different ways. In the paper، a model has been suggested to explain the impacts on trade policymaking process of I. R. Iran. Ministry of Commerce، however، was attained as the research source of data، due to the main role of the ministry on trade policy of Iran. The results indicate that economic، political and cultural forces of globalization have great impacts on trade policymaking process and probably would improve level of participation in planning and enhance trust and commitment of policymakers to the policy network.
