Determinants of gross investment in Bangladesh: a time series evidence

Wahid, Abu N. M. and Islam, Md. Rabiul and Salahuddin, Mohammad (2013) Determinants of gross investment in Bangladesh: a time series evidence. eCanadian Journal of Accounting and Finance, 1 (2). pp. 20-27.


This study examines the determinants of gross investment behavior in Bangladesh during 1982-2006. In doing so, we employed the vector error correction model, Dickey-Fuller and Phillips-Peron tests. Our findings suggest that in the short run, the explanatory variables do not have any significant impact on gross investment but in the long run, variables such as institutional quality, domestic savings, and trade openness significantly influence investment decisions. Policy makers in Bangladesh need to pay special attention to these areas in order to boost investment.
