Abstract

Turkey has become the dominant recipient of FDI inflows in the Western Asian region. We explore if such inflows have promoted growth as expected. Our analysis of the FDI/growth nexus focuses both on the long-and short-run relations and allows for the possibility that growth also responds to other factors. The results support the theoretical priors and support the existence of a robust long-run relationship linking real economic growth with FDI inflows, economic openness and human capital. Among the three growth ingredients, only human capital accumulation (good education) appears capable of stimulating economic growth in the short-run as well. The results further imply that programs to attract larger FDI inflows to Turkey should persist for some time before they can produce noticeable economic benefits.
