Abstract The massive increase in foreign direct investment (FDI) inflows following the Spanish integration with the now European Union (EU) in 1986, has been one of the most important features shaping the behaviour of the Spanish economy in the last twenty years. In this paper we will try to assess the impact of FDI on regional economic growth following Spain's entry into the EU, using data for the 17 Spanish regions. The results support the important role played by FDI in promoting productivity growth over the period analyzed, which proves to be robust to several alternative specifications.
