Abstract [en]

The aim of this paper is to investigate the relationship between economic growth and the inflow of foreign direct investment in the SSA region. Secondary data from organizations and institutes are used to examine if other factors may affect total GDP, in addition to FDI. The estimations used in the regression are foreign direct investment, property rights, level of corruption, logistic performance index, education level, initial GDP and life expectancy.
