Based on the fact that the distribution of FDI has been aggregated to the cities of the Zhujiang(Pearl) River Delta in Guangdong Province since the implementation of the policy of reform and opening-up,this article makes an analysis on the location selection of FDI in the Zhujiang River Delta by introducing the partial adjustment model.The result of the analysis indicates the location selection of FDI in the Zhujiang River Delta not only regards to the low cost of labor,the basic infrastructure,and etc.,but also has a direct relationship with the FDI stock which is regarded as the spatial accumulation effect.At last,we propose the suggestion that the Zhujiang River Delta should put stress on the cultivation and development of FDI cluster in order to boost an investment accumulation effect.
