This paper tries to provide a brief and comprehensive view on the foreign direct investment (FDI) in Romania. Besides, FDI will be viewed in the regional context of the CEE and EU member countries. Some common and specific features of FDI will be here approached and some conclusions will be drawn. (1) Data on the net inflow will develop on recent periods, see the one around financial crisis. (2) Less significance for the current FDI stock is kept by current and newly added inflows. (3) FDI by economic activities broadly regards the links between foreign capital inflow and home development. (4) By home inside regions, FDI will be seen as both creating imbalances among regions and contributing to the regional development. (5) By country sources, all the CEE countries mostly receive their FDI from the western part of Europe and EU. Finally, (6) by FDI types, the same inflow gets strongly dominated by corporate development.
