The results of the first hypothesis show that there is a direct influence between foreign investment (PMA) and government investment on poverty levels in Central Sulawesi, but there is no direct influence between domestic investment (PMDN) on poverty levels in Central Sulawesi. The second hypothesis testing shows that there is an indirect effect between foreign investment, domestic investment, and government investment on poverty levels through economic growth in Central Sulawesi.
