Abstract

With this paper we wish to contribute to the discussion on the determinants of foreign direct investment that has been so widely discussed. We present a brief literature review that tries to summarize the most important elements that have been put forth by that discussion. In the empirical part of it, we use some of those concepts to structure some models that have been tested with Italian data. The structures of the models were chosen in order to allow us to test for specificity: temporary versus permanent foreign direct investment, variables dynamic relationship and specificity of foreign direct investment by country of origin. The future of disaggregate data will be useful to test harder the obtained conclusion and to look deeper into this particular phenomena.

Keywords: International projects, foreign direct investment, real exchange rate
