Abstract: This paper takes the way that divides all thirty one provinces into five groups under the standard of accounting for twenty percentages of all regions during 1978-2004. Then it examines the share of every provincial gross domestic product per capita versus the sum of all provinces and ranks the order. And last the Lorenz Curves are drawn at the interval of two years. All computed outcomes are shown in graphs and tables, explicitly exploring the change of disparity of all China’s provincial region, what serves as scientific and objective bases for analyzing the reasons of regional economy’s disparity changes, evaluating its influences, and predicting the future development trend.

Abstract: Foreign direct investment (FDI) has been an important source of economic growth for Malaysia, bringing in capital investment, technology and management knowledge needed for economic growth. Thus, this paper aims to study the relationship between FDI and economic growth in Malaysia for the period 1970-2005 using time series data. Ordinary least square (OLS) regressions and the empirical analysis are conducted by using annual data on FDI and economy growth in Malaysia over the 1970-2005 periods. The paper used annual data from IMF International Financial Statistics tables, published by International Monetary Fund to find out the relationship between FDI and economic growth in Malaysia case. Results show that LGDP, LGNI and the LFDI series in Malaysia are I(1) series. There is sufficient evidence to show that there are significant relationship between economic growth and foreign direct investment inflows (FDI) in Malaysia. FDI has direct positive impact on RGDP, which FDI rate increase by 1% will lead to the growth rate increase by 0.046072%. Furthermore, FDI also has direct positive impact on RGNI because when FDI rate increase by 1 %, this will lead the growth increase by 0.044877%.

Abstract: Tourism is acknowledged as one of the effective means to balance inter-regional economic disparity in the world. This paper uses Theil coefficient which can be decomposed multiply, to measure temporal changes of inter-provincial, inter-regional and intra-regional disparity in Chinese inbound tourism from 1990 to 2004. Just as the result suggests, regional gap in Chinese inbound tourism from 1990 to 2004 can be summarized as follows: First, on the whole, regional disparity in Chinese tourism becomes smaller and smaller and its speed is slower as well. Secondly, intra-regional disparity is larger than that of inter-regional. Intra-regional disparity is the main contributor to inter-provincial tourism disparity. Thirdly, inter-provincial disparity remains large in the early 1990s, shrinks sharply in the mid-1990s, and continues declining in the early 21st century. Fourthly, inter-regional disparity shrinks all the time except in 1991 and 2003. Fifthly, eastern intra-regional disparity decreases sharply. Western intra-regional disparity is smaller and fluctuates slightly. Middle intra-regional disparity keeps large and has increasing trends. This paper further analyzes the factors influencing temporal changes of regional inbound tourism disparity. By comparison with other researches on temporal changes of regional economy, this paper has two meaningful discoveries: one is based on the shrinking trends of regional inbound tourism disparity and the widening trends of regional economic disparity. We think our research provides a good proof that tourism can help to balance regional economic disparity and thus help to narrow the regional economic gap. The other is that Chinese inter-regional tourism disparity becomes smaller and smaller. However, in the meantime Chinese inter-regional economic disparity becomes larger and larger. So inbound tourism can also help to balance inter-regional economic disparity.

Abstract: Foreign Direct Investment has been recognized a most powerful and convenient tool of transforming a traditional economy into a modern economy. Every nation world over is in the race of attracting more FDI inflows to accelerate the pace of economic progress and emancipation. India is no exception to this notion.India has been witnessing low growth in savings since independence and hence, keeping more pressure on the need of resources required for rapid rate of growth and development, the need of the hour. Keeping this in mind, since July 24, 1991, India has been trying hard to attract more FDI inflows to meet its development needs on the one hand and on the other hand to accelerate the pace of growth and development. But India has not been attracting FDI inflows commensuration to its requirement of the economy. The present paper analyses the emerging trends and issues in FDI inflows to India with added emphasis on Japanese FDI inflows to India. The paper has two sections. First deals with FDI inflows to India and Second Sections highlight emerging trends in Japanese FDI inflows to India.

Abstract: There is little doubt that the phase-in FDI is fuelling much of the rapid economic leap of China. Business leaders, government officials and academics are focusing considerable attention on the concept of the contribution of FDI inflows to the economic advancement in the host country China particularly in the realm of GDP furor. They are inclined to assume it as a matter of course that FDI injection in Jilin province is definitely one of the stimulating forces to its economy development. This article address this question through the lens of economics as to whether the FDI inflows to Jilin province is in complete compliance with its economic development on a sustainable basis, and whether such money injections further facilitate their impacts transfusing at best. The author synthesizes that FDI may have not crowded out domestic investment, but have been a complementary relationship with domestic investment, which has partly exerted positive powers on economic growth of Jilin province.

Abstract: the so-called "globalization" process was an important feature of the global economy in the 90's. this process was characterized by several economic and political phenomena that deepened the integration of national economies to global economy. the growth of the world's foreign direct investment (fdi) flows and the advance of regionalism are two of these phenomena interrelated by many reasons and mechanisms. this present paper aims to evaluate the impact of regional trading agreements over the world's fdi flows, based on the hypothesis that the trading arrangements, which traditionally generate trade, can also have investment creation and diversion effects. a gravity model was estimated for an unbalanced panel constituted by 71 countries for the period 1990-2003. we compared the results from several estimation methods recommended by recent literature like poisson, pooled cross-section and fixed effects methods. our results show that trade arrangements tend to increase fdi due to the raise of intra-regional investment and also to the increase of member countries' attractiveness. nevertheless, even if the gravity model has shown to be adapted for the analysis of the relationship between fdi and regionalization, some methodological issues remain opened.

Abstract: International flow of capital in the form of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) is considered to be the primary form of capital transfer in the global economy. It plays an important role among other forms of international capital flows, due to the intensity of its streams and its strength of impact on local economies. Host countries use FDI to finance activities such as industry restructuring and transfer of technology. The aim of this paper is to present current achievements in the field of theoretical explanations of FDI – its main motives. The article relates also to current selected trends in FDI flows during the economic downturn caused by the recent financial crisis. Above all ,however, this paper aims at showing FDI theories in terms of a knowledge intensive economy.

Abstract: This article examines the deterministic elements of FDI (foreign direct investment) flows into ASEAN countries. It uses a panel data in ASEAN countries and US to analyze the relationship between FDI into ASEAN and macroeconomic variables. Domestic (ASEAN) economic growth, domestic prices in ASEAN and US prices promote FDI into ASEAN. On the other hand, the relationships between FDI volatility and domestic GDP, and the FDI volatility and US price, are not found. Rises in domestic prices increase FDI volatility.
