This paper aims to model theoretically the fundamental links between financial development, foreign direct investment and economic development. In particular, we show that the entry of foreign capital flows can support an endogenous economic growth path of the host country. Indeed, we give the micro-foundations of the simple model of endogenous growth of Pagano (1993), which allowed us to analyze the impact of a constellation of key elements for economic growth. Among these elements, we identified the importance of the size of the financial sector, modernization and quality of education, diaspora network, quality of institutions and economic diplomacy in stimulating economic growth. Our main theoretical predictions are of great importance for the Arab countries that are currently undergoing political and economic transition
