The Effects of International Competition of Fiscal Incentives on Foreign Direct Investment
AbstractThis paper provides evidence on the determinants of foreign direct investment (FDI) inflows from multinationals across the twenty-one host countries over the period 1980 to 1993. We examine the role that fiscal incentives and macroeconomic factors play in explaining FDI inflows. It is shown that countries variation of property taxes, sales taxes, GDP, wages, play a statistically significant role to attract FDI. Interestingly, new technology credit tends to attract more FDI to improve technological capability in Southeast Asian countries. Export credit is an important factor for Latin American countries to enhance export-oriented capacity. Our findings also suggest the policy makers can effectively use regional policy instruments to bring the current FDI to the desired level more easily for host countries in Southeast Asia than for those in Latin America.
