Last 8 years Senegal’s FDI inflows increased
dramatically and in 2018, reached 629 million US$. I
want to study about influential factors and empirical
research FDI inflows on Economic growth. Senegal
external debt and FDI inflows are increasing by every
year, we are facing problems that a huge amount of
money back pay. For this reason, this topic is much
interesting to me. My purposes of this research is to
study research on economic current situation of Senegal
and an analysis of the factors influencing the economic
growth. I have achieved purposes of my thesis, I used
OLS regression method. I also built the model on this
paper. In open economy, defining factors of FDI inflows
to economic growth is based on simple model
(Unemployment, GDP and others). It involved
hypothesis that FDI inflows has impact on these
variables in the short term.
The equation results, the change in Senegal’s GDP
growth is depending on the following variables such as
FDI net inflows of Senegal, Employment level, Net
capital account of Senegal.
Keywords : GDP; FDI; Employment, Senegal.
