Public and private sector financing is essential in the movement of capital to achieve all seventeen Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by the United Nations members by 2030. Foreign direct investment (FDI) is considered the primary source of external financing in the private sector. FDI accelerates the economic growth of any country by mobilising capital, increasing labour productivity, technological advancements, etc. The present paper aims to study the potential effect of FDI on Sustainable Development in Eurasian countries.
Our research considers a sample of 78 Eurasian countries, further distinguished by their income classes. We applied a fixed effects regression model to investigate the relation between FDI and SDG index. Our findings reveal that there is a positive and significant effect of FDI on the SDG index. Furthermore, our results also indicate that the role of FDI is more decisive and fundamental the lower the income class of the countries. Our research contributes to the current literature on Sustainable Development. We believe that our research paper will serve as a base for policy recommendations and future research studies on the influence of FDI on sustainable development for Eurasian countries.
