According to the first part of Granger Causality results, China, Republic of Korea, Indonesia, Singapore and Turkey has causality from export to FDI at 1% significance level. Nepal, Sri Lanka, Philippines, Thailand and Oman has a causality from export to FDI at 5% significance level. Finally, it is possible to say that Bangladesh and India has a causality from export to FDI at 10% significance level, while the likelihood value is very close to the 5% significance value. According to the second part of the Granger causality relationship tests Sri Lanka, Indonesia and Turkey has a causality from FDI to export at 1% significance level, India, Nepal and Thailand has a causality from FDI to export at 5% significance level. Finally, the existence of a causality relationship from FDI to Export was found at 10% significance level in Hong Kong, Bangladesh, Singapore, Bahrain, Oman and Saudi Arabia.
