Abstract

Within this report is an investigation into the causality between gross domestic product (GDP), exports and foreign direct investment (FDI). Eight countries will be selected from two differing areas of the world; four from South East Asia and four from Sub-Saharan Africa. The results will then be compared on an individual and group basis.

The report will employ time series analysis to investigate possible links between the variables. Vector autoregression and vector error correction models will be used as a framework to investigate Granger causality. This report finds that each country has its own idiosyncratic relationship between the GDP, exports and FDI and previous generalised rules concerning linkages between them may need further assessment.
