FDI is a key factor for economic modernization through changes in production patterns, technology transfer and greater competition pressures. In the latest years, Romania has benefited from important FDI flows, mainly due to the privatization process, but also due to the advantages of cheap labor force and a big internal market. From the beginning of the transition period, Romania went through a rapid opening-up process of its economy, which has resulted, among others, in attracting significant foreign direct investment (FDI). The presence of foreign firms has grown significantly, which is a sign of increasing economic integration. In this paper we shall make an analysis of the FDI evolution in Romania using the data provided by the National Trade Register Office of Romania for the period 1990-2009 and National Institute of Statistics.
