Abstract

The purpose of this pape1· is two-fold: Firstly, to examine Sub-Saham Afdca's (SSA) competitive advantage as the least 1·ecipient of 1·egional Foreign Direct Investment (FDI). Secondly, to investigate the possibility of unified Government Regulations to exploit SSA competiveness. It is a1·gued that there is a strong conrelation between SSA's competitiveness and FDI on the one hand and Gove1·nment Regulations to enhance the 1·egional competitive advantage on the other. Using Dynamic Panel Analysis (1970-2013), 1·esults obtained 1·eveal occurrence of p1·edatm·y FDI encourged by SSA's lack of competitive advantage. The conclusion establishes the need from an SSA Investment Boa1·d, a development of collective SSA investment policies, as well as 1·egional investment zones fo1· sustainable gmwth and development.
