The strong growth performances experienced by Malaysia economy greatly depends
on the Foreign Direct Investment (FDI). FDI is basically generates economic growth
by increasing the formation of capital through the expansion of production capacity,
promotion of export growth and creation of employment in Malaysia. This research is

export and foreign exchange reserves in Malaysia by conduct a test on annual data
set of sample size 30 over the period of 1985 to 2015. FDI inflows in Malaysia had
massively fluctuated from year 1996 to 2010 and later. Therefore, this extensive
volatility drew the researchers’ attention to scrutinize the cause that affecting FDI
inflows in Malaysia. In regards to this research, Multiple Linear Regressions model is
applied to find the relationship between the considered variables. This paper

not clear if these factors will also be the huge contribution to the FDI inflows in
Malaysia.
