Abstract

This study aims to evaluate the long-run and short-run relationships among foreign direct investment (FDI) inflows and their determinants in Jordan for the (1978-2012) period. The bounds testing approach is used to analyze the long-run and short-run relationships among the variables. However, the Granger causality test is utilized to explore the directions of causality among the variables. The results identify that there are long-run and short-run relationships among FDI and its determinants. Moreover, the Granger causality test recommends a deferent causal relationship among FDI and their determinants. In general, the Jordanian policy makers have to be aware to the importance of inward FDI in the Jordanian economy.
