INTRODUCTIONThe positive developmental role of domestic and foreign investment on economic growthin host countries is well documented in literature. Investment is usually directed in sectors that enjoy comparative advantage, thereby creating economies of scale and linkage effects and hence raising productivity. An important argument in favor of foreign investment is that it consists of a package of capital, technology management, and market access. For foreign investment, repayment is required only if investors make profit and when they make profit, they tend to reinvest their profit rather than remit abroad. Another benefit of foreign investment is a confidence building effect. While the local economic environment determines the overall degree of investment confidence in a country, inflows of foreign investment could reinforce the confidence, thereby contributing to the creation of a virtuous cycle that affects not only local and foreign investment but also foreign trade and production.
