FDI and Economic Growth in European Transition Economies: Panel Data Analysis

FDI and Economic Growth in European Transition Economies: Panel Data Analysis

 The main purpose of this paper is to investigate relationship between foreign direct investment and economic growth based on 14 European Transition Economies for the period 1995 to 2014. Empirical model includes GDP per capita growth (% annual), foreign direct investment, net inflows (% GDP) and composite index of control variables which developed with PCA. Firstly homogeneity and cross sectional dependence among units are examined with Delta and  tests and it is found that all series have heterogeneity and cross sectional dependency. For that reason, second generation Multifactor error structure (Pesaran et al, 2013) panel unit root test is used and it is also taken into account effect of unobserved common factors as a prerequisite of CCE Model just after proving the co-integration relationship and causality between variables via of Durbin-Hausmann (Westerlund, 2008) co-integration and Dumetriscu-Hurlin (2012) causality tests. Obtained results strongly support one-way causality from foreign direct investments and composite index to economic growth. Unfortunately, there is no causality between foreign direct investments and composite index of control variables. Our findings indicate that foreign direct investments contribute negatively to economic growth in contrast to theory points out but control variables contribute positively at European transition countries.
