The objective of this paper is to analyze the relationship between Foreign direct investment (FDI) and economic growth by presenting the impact FDI has on Rwandan economic growth by employing the data from 1998 to 2018 a period of 20 years using World Bank data. This study presents two hypotheses related to GDP growth per capita and FDI. Multiple regression techniques and Augmented Dickey-Fuller Test were used to measure the relationships between independent (FDI) and dependent variables (real GDP). In addition, stationarity test was used and economic software Eviews 10 to present the result. The result showed that foreign direct investment has a positive but not statistically significant impact on Rwandan economic growth.
