Oscar Bajo-Rubio (), Carmen Diaz-Mora and Carmen Diaz-Roldan

No 07-08, Working Papers from Asociación Española de Economía y Finanzas Internacionales

Abstract: The massive increase in foreign direct investment (FDI) inflows following the Spanish integration with the now European Union (EU) in 1986, has been one of the most important features shaping the behaviour of the Spanish economy in the last twenty years. In this paper we will try to assess the impact of FDI on regional economic growth following Spain´s entry into the EU, using data for the 17 Spanish regions. The results support the important role played by FDI in promoting productivity growth, for those regions that received higher FDI inflows over the period analyzed.
