This paper examines the effects of corruption on the inﬂow of FDI in ASEAN-5 countries by controlling two macroeconomic variables namely Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and inﬂation. Using a static panel data estimation, the results show the signiﬁcant relationship between corruption and Gross Domestic Product (GDP) on the inﬂow of FDI in ASEAN-5. This results indicate that less corrupted countries and larger market size would attract more FDI inﬂows. The policy implications from this study suggests that ASEAN-5 governments need to have concerted and continues efforts in improving the integrity and credibility of their administration and transactions. In addition, maintaining their sustainable of economic growth is also crucial as a full factor in attracting more FDI inﬂows in future.
