In recent decades, globalization has accelerated the scale of FDI flows into, and between, countries. Global deregulation of financial and goods markets has accelerated the integration and interdependency of nations. These flows have been particularly important as drivers of economic growth in both developing and emerging economies. The relationship between FDI flows and economic growth is rather complex and multi- dimensional. The purpose of this research is to provide an opportunity to explore the significance of FDI flows and the implications for long-term sustainable economic development. The research will be of value to national governments and international organizations in that it will seek to identify the determinants of FDI. This has direct implication for national economic planning. There will be an emphasis on econometric modelling which may be conducted at a single country level or across many countries, either developed or developing. We are currently seeking a strong PhD candidate to engage in a study of Foreign Direct Investment flows with an emphasis on econometric modelling for planning purposes “GraphWithStacksOfCoins"byKenTeegardinislicensedunderCCBY2.0
