Abstract

The paper explores the evolution of FDI in South Asian countries over the past decade, its impact on technological transfer, innovation, and economic growth, the influence of regulatory environments and government policies, and its role in addressing unemployment and promoting job creation across different sectors and skill levels. It also investigates geographical variations in FDI effects and their implications for policy. The study aims to contribute to understanding FDI's effects on regional economic growth and provide insights for maximizing its benefits through policy recommendations. Three factors affect how well foreign direct investment (FDI) promotes economic development and job creation in South Asia: institutional quality, human capital, and absorptive ability. Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) holds promise for fostering economic growth and employment generation in South Asia. But the effects of FDI differ from nation to nation and depend on a number of variables. South Asian governments ought to enact laws to draw foreign direct investment into high-value industries like manufacturing and technology. To enhance worker proficiency and augment absorbency ability, governments had to allocate resources towards human capital development. Overall, this study sheds light on how foreign direct investment (FDI) affects economic growth and job creation in South Asia and emphasises the significance of organisational quality, human capital, and absorbing ability in maximising the advantages of FDI.
