Determinants of Inflow of Foreign Direct Investment in Hungary and China: Time-Series Approach
This paper analyses what factors best explain foreign capital inflows into Hungary and China during the period 1978-92. The size of the host country markets is found to play a positive role, while the cost of capital variables and political instability are negatively correlated with investment inflows. It supports the hypothesis that low-cost labour and currency depreciation are important factors in explaining how much foreign capital inflows into a particular country. There is little evidence to support classical hypotheses concerning tariff barriers and imports variables. The OECD growth rates show significant positive correlation with foreign direct investment in Hungary. © 1997 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
