Co-Integration Study of Relationship between Foreign Direct Investment and Economic Growth

Haitao Sun


Based on basic theories and methods of co-integration study, in this paper the author chooses data of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) and Gross Domestic Product (GDP) as samples and makes a co-integration study of relationship between FDI and economic growth.
