Based on estimation results, all independent variables were significant and positive effects on Economic Growth. Furthermore, the panel data regression model that has been formed is found to be fit, which means that Tourism Income, Tourist Visits, Infrastructure, and Labour are considered capable of representing the factors that influence Economic Growth in Aceh Province.
