Foreign direct investment has played a significant role for developing countries in their transition and development process. Therefore, the aim of this study is to examine the impact of the foreign direct investments and the foreign trade on GDP for 7 Eurasian Countries by using panel data methods. Accordingly to the results of analysis, there is an evidence of a long-term relationship between foreign direct investments, foreign trade and GDP for the 1996-2013 period. On the other hand, according to the results of AMG Estimator, import and export has a positive impact on GDP. However, there isn’t a statistically significant relationship between foreign direct invesment and GDP.


Son yıllarda küreselleşme olgusuyla beraber hem dış ticaret hem de doğrudan yabancı yatırımlar ekonomik büyüme üzerine etkisi olan önemli faktörler olarak karşımıza çıkmaktadırlar. Dış ticaretin ve doğrudan yabancı yatırımların ekonomik büyüme üzerine etkisi birçok iktisatçı için önemli bir araştırma alanı olmuştur. Bu bağlamda, bu çalışma 1996-2013 dönemine ait yıllık veriler kullanılarak 7 Avrasya Ülkesi için Durbin Hausman Panel Eşbütünleşme Analizi ve Panel AMG tahmincisi yardımıyla GSYH üzerine doğrudan yabancı yatırımların ve dış ticaretin etkisini araştırmaktadır. Elde edilen bulgular değişkenler arasında uzun dönemli bir ilişkinin olduğunu göstermektedir. Eşbütünleşme katsayılarının sonuçları, ithalat ve ihracatın olumlu bir etkiye sahip olduğunu fakat doğrudan yabancı yatırımlarının GSYİH ile ilişkisinin istatistiksel olarak anlamlı olmadığını göstermektedir.
