This paper will focus on the MENA countries who joined the BRI after 2013. The purpose is to analyse the relations between China’s outwards investment during 2011-2019 and the economic growth in MENA countries. There are some reviews about the positive effects of FDI on developing countries’ economic growth, which brings potential risk assessment as well. Under the theoretical guidance, I first collect and write the introduction for each country, the background of FDI and BRI, then bring my own research questions and use certain quantitative research methods to explore some empirical evidence.
