This paper investigates the link between different disaggregating of investment and economic growth based on the exogenous growth model in order to shed light on which type of disaggregated investment can better promote economic growth in the Cyprus economy. We employed multivariate cointegration and causality techniques for analysing a disaggregated investment version of the Augmented Solow Growth model, which basically embodies investment in the tourism sector and investment in the non-tourism sector by adopting the framework introduced by Mankiw et al. (1992), by Benhabib and Spiegel (1994), and Temple (1998)
