FDI Could Resume Growth In 2015
Foreign direct investment (FDI) reentered on an upward trend in the first two months of 2015, but the values are much lower than the figures recorded before the financial crisis.
Romanian FDI stood at EUR2.43 billion in 2014, down from EUR2.7 billion in the previous year, according to central bank data. The highest value of investment inflows was received by Romania in 2008, EUR9.5 billion.
Overall FDI stock stood at EUR59.96 billion at the end of 2013, the central bank data shows.
The Netherlands is the largest foreign investor in Romania, with total investments reaching almost 25% of the total FDI stock. Austria ranks on the second spot, with around 20% of the total FDI stock, followed by Germany, whose contribution stands at some 11% of the FDI stock.
