FDI in Romania plunges by 60% in 2020

The volume of foreign direct investments (FDI) in Romania contracted by over 60% to EUR 1.92 billion (less than 1% of GDP) in 2020, compared to 2019, Romania’s National Bank (BNR) reported, according to Romania-Insider.com.

Out of the total FDI, equity investments (including estimated net reinvested profit) amounted to a net value of EUR 3.95 bln, while intragroup loans registered a negative net value of EUR 2.03 bln.

Of the total equity investments, a very narrow share accounted for new companies set up by foreign investors: just over EUR 20 mln, and this was not the case only in 2020.

The number of new firms with foreign capital set up in 2020 decreased by 26.5% compared to the previous year, to 4,084, according to data centralized by the National Trade Registry’s Office (ONRC).
