The impact of foreign direct investment on the fixed capital accumulation in the Romanian economy


  • Anca Mihaela BONDOC

    (University of Craiova)


The foreign direct investment (FDI) has become more and more important over the last couple of decades. Known to be one of the latest factors to stimulate the economic growth, affecting directly the social and regional development, the foreign direct investment is now also one of Romania's priorities. The FDI is more than just a mechanism to help integrate a country into the world's economics; it is the liaison between the productive systems of different nations. This article will emphasize how important is the FDI to the sustainable development of the Romanian economy, by watching closely its impact on accumulation of fixed capital between 2003 and 2006. Therefore, we will see the FDI growth over the last few years. Romania has significantly improved in 2004, when the FDI went up to more than 5 bill euro. Nevertheless, the record value of FDI has been registered in 2006, reaching almost 9.1 bill euro. I believe that the FDI was quite relevant in developing the Romanian fixed capital.
