In the short-run, stock market also has positive relation to economic growth in all countries but significant only in India and China.The impact of FDI on growth is significant and positive only for Singapore.The results indicate that the inflation variable is statistically significant in Bangladesh and Singapore.The empirical findings of the study reveal that stock market development and FDI inflows play vital roles in the process of economic growth and development in these selected countries.
