The purpose of dissertation is to test the impact of natural resource abundance on the FDI-Growth relationship. Natural recourse endowment is one of the many factors attracting FDI (Kekic 2005). However, the abundance of natural resources in a country also effects the type of FDI the country attracts. Analyzing the role of natural resources in attracting FDI, Poelhekke and Van der Ploeg (2010) found out that natural resources attract higher resource FDI and crowds out the non-resource FDI. This effect of natural resource abundance on the sector wise composition of natural resource underestimates the growth boosting impact of FDI inflow on the overall economy of the country. According to Asiedu (2005) “FDI does not have the positive spillovers of job creation and technology transfers because countries that are rich in resources generally channel FDI to the natural resource industries.

While the abundance of natural resources attract FDI into the country and change the composition of FDI inflow in favor of the resource sector, the size of the resource sector of an economy is generally associated with the slower growth of the economy. Natural resource rich countries fail to grow faster than the resource scarce countries (Sachs and Warner 1997). The phenomenon is often referred to as the “resource curse”. Many studies have attempted to explain the causes behind the resource curse. One of the main causes is that resource abundance lead to higher corruption in government. In a panel data analysis of natural resources Busse et.al (2011) found out that natural resources led to increase in corruption level. De Rosa et.al (2012) concluded that the high degree of resource exports is associated with the worse government effectiveness and reduced level of competitiveness.

Therefore, it is important to ask the question about natural resources altering the FDI-growth relationship when the natural resource abundance alter the sector-wise composition of FDI in favor of the resource sector and at the same time the resource sector is considered to be a source of slow growth.
