ABSTRACT
For a capital scarce country like Pakistan, foreign direct investment plays a vital role in human as well as physical capital formation. Besides having positive and significant impact on economic growth, FDI enhances the productivity of human capital and physical capital through a transfer of technology into a recipient country. FDI accelerates the process of capital formation and generates more employment opportunities. In this study we have used time series data in order to analyze the long-run impact of different levels of human capital available in Pakistan on FDI and for this purpose Johansen cointegration technique is used, followed by ECM for the short-run analysis. This study deduces that Pakistan lacks the minimum threshold level of human capital to mobilize the skill seeking FDI.
