Abstract

Recent studies highlight the importance of spatial externalities on the economic growth. The growth in one region creates some information or technological spillover, which affect the growth of the surrounding regions. The main theoretical foundation is the growth model with Arrow-Romer Externalities. Although numerous studies have provided empirical evidence for the role of the spatial externalities among neighbouring countries, within the theoretical framework, this study considers the possible existence of the externalities among adjacent regions in a developed country. It conducts an empirical investigation to test the significance of the spatial externalities of the growth rate among cities in East Java Indonesia, for the tourism sector. The panel Spatial Autoregressive model is used. The result supports the hypothesis of the growth interdependence between adjacent regions.
