This paper investigates the effects of inward FDI and labour productivity on exports of Australian manufacturing industries using a dynamic panel regression technique. The results find that, in the short-run, FDI has no significant impact upon exports, while labour productivity has a significant positive effect on exports, of Australian manufacturing industries. In the long run, inward FDI and labour productivity have positive effects on the exports by encouraging inward FDI and by enhancing the labour productivity in Australian manufacturing industries.
