An Evaluation of Relationship between Foreign Direct Investment and Economic Growth in Vietnam

PHẠM THỊ HOÀNG ANH, LÊ HÀ THU

Tóm tắt


Foreign direct investment (FDI) is an essential source of capital in the gross investment conducive to national economic growth, including the case of Vietnam. Since the 1987 Foreign Investment Law, the country has attracted a large amount of foreign capital, which makes a significant contribution to economic development. This research employs a VAR model to analyze the relationship between FDI and Vietnam’s economic growth. The results suggest that FDI has a positive impact on the latter and vice versa. The research also finds that FDI stimulates export and improves the quality of human resources and technology - important prerequisites for the economic growth.http://jabes.ueh.edu.vn/Home/SearchArticle?article_Id=b757c895-3952-4a3e-a64a-62a8e69845c4
