The empirical findings of the final model shows that the most appropriate panel regression model for selected low-income countries is Fixed Effect Model (FEM). As the results found that, the coefficients of all independent variables have the positive relationship with dependent variable. Meanwhile, if increasing of 1percent in independent variables will lead the increasing of 1percent in dependent variable. Besides that, there are two independent variables are significant impact on dependent variable and two independent variables are insignificant impact on dependent variable.
