Abstract: This study revisits how infrastructure and economic environment affect FDI inflow. Using static and dynamic estimations on 81 countries from 1995 to 2013, the study finds electricity availability having the strongest positive impact alongside Economic Freedom and GDP. However, urban population and unemployment shows negative impact. This study suggests for urbanization with lower cost of living and developed infrastructure to attract more FDI.
