PurposeThis paper aims to examine the link among foreign direct investment (FDI), domestic credit expansion and economic growth for six Pacific Island countries.Design/methodology/approachUsing panel data over 1982-2011, the authors relate the interaction between domestic credit to private sector and FDI to its impacts on output. This study makes use of panel cointegration and the generalized method of moments estimators.FindingsThe empirical results generally show that FDI and domestic credit to private sector serve as substitutes to promote output in these small economies. Such findings are robust to a number of sensitivity tests.Originality/valueThis study contributes to the literature by examining the interaction between domestic credit to private sector and FDI and its impact on output in small Pacific Island economies.
