Abstract—The main purpose of this paper is to examine the various factors that attract Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in North Africa countries, in order to find answers to the following question: What are the determinants / impediments of FDI inflow to North Africa countries? The study investigates the relationship between FDI and the economic growth in the North African countries, covering the period 1961-2012. Results from the analysis suggest that FDI is explained by some economic determinants but has non- significant effect on GDP growth. The study also investigates FDI Behavior in Egypt and explaining this behavior.

Index Terms—foreign direct investment, economic growth, North Africa, Egyptian FDI behavior
