Abstract:

Many indices (e.g., Logistics Performance Index) provide a framework for evaluating the relative standing of countries in terms of infrastructure quality and performance. However, universal investment in infrastructure is not an efficient way to influence economic growth. It is critical to identify and assess all indicators of infrastructure and focus on developing weak links. With this backdrop, the purpose of this research is to investigate the relationship between regional logistics infrastructure and the regional GDP. This will help to better understand the relative importance of diverse logistics indicators in influencing economic development, and provide insights for policy decision-making.
