By defining national wealth, the authors point out that foreign direct investment is an essential component in improving and developing the accumulated national wealth. foreign direct investment is a possibility for each country to act in order to attract funds, in the case of Romania in the European Union or other countries that can participate in the valorization of natural resources, components of national wealth, in the interest of the respective nation. foreign direct investment has the advantage that, for any country, it eliminates the need for internal and external credits, ensures job creation, secures superior management, external sales, and consequently contributes to the increase in the accumulated value of national wealth. The authors also focus on identifying the main issues regarding the organization of statistical research on the basis of which to obtain the details of the influence of foreign investments on the value increase of the accumulated elements. In this context, foreign direct investment, quality of foreign investor or foreign investment enterprise, etc. are defined. The authors formulate a series of relationships, on the basis of which, the important elements on which the activity is based in this field can be calculated and highlighted with effect in increasing the value of the accumulated elements. Details are given about the components of a statistical survey, carried out in the above-mentioned sense. A survey was carried out and its results are broadly expressed by the calculated indicators, namely the net flow and foreign direct investment balance, the distribution of foreign direct investment by economic activities, the tangible and intangible assets, the geographical distribution of foreign attracted investments and many other aspects, ultimately lead to the conclusion of the role of foreign direct investments in the accumulated value of national wealth.
