The Impact of FDI on Economic Growth: The Case of China

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to investigate the impact of foreign direct investment (FDI) on economic growth in China during the period 1994-2003. The theoretical framework shows that FDI has a positive impact on economic growth because it serves as a channel through which new technology is transferred from one country to another and thereby it increases output and GDP in the recipient country. Previous researchers’ work on the subject has also been reviewed to be able to interpret the results.

The research is based on secondary data for 30 different regions in China. The empirical results show a positive but insignificant effect of FDI as a fraction of GDP on the level of GDP when the regression model includes all 30 regions. When the four poorest regions that have almost no inflow FDI are excluded, the regression model continues to show a positive effect of FDI on the level of GDP and in addition, the result is statistically signifi-cant at the 6 % level.

Abstract [sv]

Denna uppsats studerar utländska direkt investeringars påverkan på den ekonomiska till-växten i China under perioden 1994-2003. En teoretisk modell har utvecklats, som visar att utländska direktinvesteringar har en positiv inverkan på ekonomisk tillväxt, då de fungerar som en kanal via vilken ny teknologi överförs till från ett land till ett annat och därmed ökar produktion och BNP i det mottagande landet. Tidigare studier kring ämnet presente-ras också.

Undersökningen är baserad på sekundär data för 30 olika regioner i Kina. De empiriska re-sultaten tyder på en positiv men icke-signifikant effekt av utländska direktinvesteringar som en del av BNP på BNP-nivån, när regressionsmodellen inkluderar alla 30 regioner. När de fyra fattigaste regionerna med ett näst intill obefintligt tillflöde av utlandsinvesteringar är utelämnade, visar regressionsmodellen ett signifikant resultat på 6 procents signifikantsnivå.
