Determinants of Foreign Direct Investment in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia

Auther : Mahmoud M. Abdel-Rahman

This paper investigates the determinants of FDI flows into the economy of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The paper firstly discusses FDI with respect to overall trends, sources, and their regional, sectoral and sub-sectoral distributions. The paper then focuses on the determinants of FDI where the roles of market size, openness and international trade, wage rates, and country risk in attracting FDI to the KSA are investigated. Empirical methods used to gauge the issues include causality tests and conventional regression models where results generally show that activity GDP levels affect FDI in a robust, positive and significant way. Exports had a significant negative impact on the KSA's FDI, while the socio-political risk variables were mostly significant, and negative in their impacts on FDI inflows.
