# As seen from Table 2, most of the coefficients of the estimated equations have the right

signs and are significant at conventional levels. From the FDI equation, we find that

foreign direct investment is positively related to per capita income of the host country.

# This variable is statistically significant at 10 per cent level. There is also a positive
