Abstract: Economic Growth is a concerning issue for the development of Bangladesh. Foreign direct investment (FDI) is a potential weapon for economic development, especially for Bangladesh. It can help us to build up physical capital, decrease unemployment rate, increase production capacity and create a good economic relationship between the domestic economy with global economy .This study examines the impacts of foreign direct investment on economic growth in Bangladesh during the period of 1990-2015 by using Ordinary Least Square (OLS) method. The findings of the study reveal that FDI has its negative signs, which indicates that there is inverse relationships between FDI and economic growth.The negative sign of FDI support that Bangladesh should attract FDI by increasing human capital, creating a good political environment and enhancing adequate infrastructure facilities, which will improve our economic growth.
