By employing Panel ordinary least squares estimation technique in log linear model, study finds that the tourism has positive impact and FDI has negative impact on economic growth in four ASIAN while impact of exports of goods and services on economic growth is inconclusive. In addition to that, we find that human capital and physical capital have positive impact on economic growth of these countries.
