Romania toppled Hungary in the rankings of the most attractive countries for foreign investments in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) in 2014, ranking third in the region, after Poland and the Czech Republic, according to the annual EY report – European Attractiveness Survey. Nevertheless, the top two are on a downward trend in 2014 compared to 2013, whereas Romania’s attractiveness went up by 2 per cent. If this trend persists, Romania might overcome the Czech Republic in 2015, becoming the second state in terms of attractiveness for foreign investors in the CEE. Last year, Romania remained stable on the tenth position in Europe regarding the number of jobs newly created through direct foreign investments in 2013, when they generated 6,157 jobs, 13 per cent less than the previous year when the direct foreign investments generated 7,114 jobs. On the first positions in these rankings there were the UK, France, Poland, Russia and Serbia.
