Abstract: This paper proposes the study of foreign direct investment behaviour in Morocco, which is one of the main areas of research of economic theory, but also a field of very vivid controversies. The magnitude of fluctuations in foreign direct investment and its role in economic movements has led to a plethora of analyses, sometimes difficult to associate with a school of thought and often technically complex. We will make an empirical assessment, based on Moroccan data, to explain the behaviour of FDI through different economic indicators over the period 1970-2017. To do this we will carry out an econometric study which will treat FDI according to several parameters such as: growth rate (GR), inflation rate (INFLR), degree of openness (DO), exchange rate (XR), human capital (HC) and fiscal pressure (FP). For this, We will use the EVEIWS Software to present the model of multiple regression, then we will deal with the violation of hypothesis from which we will apply tests of multicolinearity, autocorrelation and heteroscedasticity.
Keywords: FDI, simple regression, multiple regression, multicollinearity, autocorrelation, heteroscedasticity
