    En este trabajo se analiza la relación entre la inversión extranjera directa y la gobernabilidad de los países de América Latina. Se elabora un índice de eficiencia gubernamental que incorpora los indicadores del “Worldwide Governance Indicators” para evitar problemas de multicolinealidad. En general, los resultados del estudio muestran que el índice de eficiencia gubernamental exhibe una relación positiva y significativa con la inversión extranjera directa. Por lo tanto, este trabajo destaca el rol que ostenta la gobernabilidad como mecanismo de atracción de inversionistas extranjeros.
