''Assessing Foreign Direct Investment Long-Run Contribution to Financial Development: Evidence from Namibia''
( 2020, Vol. 40 No.4 )
 
 
Abstract We investigate the impact of Foreign Direct Investment on financial development using Domestic Credit to the Private Sector and Private Credit by Deposit money banks as a broader measure of financial indicators. We use the autoregressive distributed lag bounds co-integration analysis for long-run estimation on the Namibia economy as a case study for the periods 1990 to 2017. The Error Correction Model and the Granger causality approach are further used to examine the short-run dynamics and the direction of causality. Our results confirm the presence of a long-run association between FDI and financial development along with economic growth and human capital, the existence of uni-directional causal association from FDI to financial development measured in terms of domestic credit to the private sector, and bi-directional causation when measured in terms of private credit by deposit money banks. We conclude that FDI benefits Namibia financial system whilst playing a critical role in promoting human capital and economic development.
