Thesis title: Research on the Provincial Foreign Direct Investment Determinants and Its Relationship with Economic Growth: An Empirical Study in Indonesia.

This research aims to find out the relationship of inward FDI and economic growth in Indonesia using panel data of the provinces in Indonesia over ten years period of time from 2008 to 2017. The research also studies the determinants of FDI. According to the literature review, there are six common determinants of FDI. These six are economic growth, market size, trade openness, human capital, financial market development and infrastructure. These determinants are tested in the case of Indonesia. Furthermore, there are supporting variables that are included in the analysis of the relationship between FDI and economic growth. These are human capital, financial market development and trade openness. These three variables are each interacted with FDI in order to see whether or not the combined effects are significant enough to influence economic growth. These models are tested using three research methodologies. These three are random/fixed effects model, system GMM and Granger Causality. The results show that the relationship between FDI and economic growth has been found to be negative using both random effects model and system GMM when the interaction term of FDI and human capital is introduced into the equation. The results are insignificant in both methodologies and both proxies of FDI when the interaction term of FDI and human capital is excluded. Overall, this research poses concerns for both academicians and practitioners.
