Abstract

This paper studies the relationship between foreign direct investment, inflation rate, export and exchange rate on economic growth in Malaysia during the period from 1984-2014. All the variables seem to have relationship with economic growth. Unit root test and diagnostic test were being used to test whether it is stationary or non-stationary. The analyses are conducted using multiple linear regression to get the results. Foreign direct investment and export show a positively relationship towards economic growth, therefore, it is perfectly significant. The multiple linear regression results show that all the independent variables were significant relationship towards dependent relationship since the F-value and P-value were 8.428080 and 0.000169 respectively. The null hypothesis has been rejected because the F-statistic is statistically significant at 1% significant level. Based on the result, exchange rate is the most factors that give impact on economic growth.
