主讲内容:

This study analyses the impact of foreign direct investment (FDI) and governance on economic growth in Sub-Saharan Africa and presents estimations based on panel data of 45 Sub-Saharan African countries during the period 1995-2014. Utilising the endogenous economic growth theoretic framework, the empirical models were estimated using Least Square Dummy Variable (LSDV) estimator. The empirical results show that FDI is positive and statistically correlated with economic growth in both the LSDV and system-GMM estimations, in low-income and lower-middle income countries and SSA, in aggregate. We find that human capital, domestic investment, trade openness is growth-enhancing, while infrastructure development does not affect economic growth in SSA. Our empirical results indicate that the impact of governance dimensions on FDI-growth nexus is mixed across income groupings and in SSA, in aggregate. The policy implications of the findings are discussed.
