Descriptive and regression analyses were used as the estimationtechniques. The findings of the study revealed that the coefficient value ofLFDI is 0.633506 and its p-value is 0.0002 implying that a unit increase inLFDI will increase LGDP with the value of 0.633506. The coefficient value ofRINTR is 0.004127 with p-value of 0.310 indicating that a unit increase in realinterest rate will increase gross domestic product, but it is not significant.Also, LDI coefficient value is 1.758036 with p-value of 0.0688 implying that aunit increase in domestic investment will increase gross domestic productpositively with the value of 1.758036 which is significant at 10 but notsignificant at 5 alpha level. The coefficient value of exchange rate is0.835206 with the p-value of 0.0000 signifying that exchange rate is positiveand significant to economic growth.
