Abstract

Thanks to a level of growth in foreign investment, the gap is narrowing between Romania and other East European countries like the Czech Republic, Poland and Hungary, countries normally considered the preferred choice of foreign investors. In the last years, Romania has become a more appealing target for an increasing number of foreign investors. After its accession in NATO in 2004 and in European Union in 2007, Romania positioned itself very firmly within the Euro - Atlantic zone, with all political, economical and military consequences deriving from it.
