The paper cover time period from 1994 to 2017. Analysis is realized for OECD-18 countries<a href="#_ftn1" name="_ftnref1">[1]</a>. Time period and country group selected as data availability. At first, we have been looked into data set cross-section dependency and heterogeneous. After, we have been estimated models by AMG estimator which account for cross-section dependency and heterogenous. As result obtained from analysis, GDP and openness have mostly statistically significant but it has positive impact on just high-tech goods group competitiveness. Exchange rate have significant impact on just raw-intensive and hard imitable goods competitiveness, however, it has positive effect on hard imitable goods competitiveness. Other hands, FDI have significant and negative impact just on raw-intensive goods. At last, human capital just have significant impact just on labor-intensive goods competitiveness.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Rustem Yanar Huseyin Celik Copyright (c) 2021 Journal of Financial Economics and Banking 2021-05-30 2021-05-30 2 1 1 10 Editor's Note <p>The aim of the JOFEB is to provide an outlet for research in financial markets and financial institutions, especially banking.
