Abstract: This study investigates the macroeconomic determinants of external debt in oil and gas exporting and importing countries. The study uses panel data of 12 oil and gas exporting and 12 oil and gas importing countries covering the period 2004-2013. The study identifies eight macroeconomic factors that significantly affect the external debt of oil and gas exporting and importing countries. The major lesson learnt from this study is the importance of avoiding particular generalization for external debt accumulation factors for oil and gas exporting and importing countries. Furthermore, the effect of different macroeconomic factors can be different in these two groups of countries.
