Abstract

Over time, foreign investments were the decisive factor contributing to the development of nations, but were the hardest hit during economic recessions. Under the circumstances of the world economy globalization and of the quasi-liberalization of international capital movements, leading to a high degree of financial markets interdependence, the impact of the crisis triggered in 2008 on FDI has been severe: decreased investment ability of companies, both on account of restricting access to financial resources and declining corporate profits; increased costs of financing on volatile international capital markets; reduced risk appetite of investors; deteriorated business climate; re-location of investments portfolio and the pressure of sovereign debts.
