ABSTRACT
The article reports that the inflows of foreign direct investment into Slovakia picked up again in 2004 to U.S. $1.1 billions, after an unusually sluggish U.S.$ 571 millions in 2003. Slovakia will face increasing competition for foreign direct investment from lowercost, second-wave European Union accession states such as Romania and Bulgaria, the outlook is for a further pick-up over the forecast period. From 1998, annual inflows have averaged U.S. $1.5 billions, compared with under U.S.$ 300 millions previously. Central to this turnaround has been the advent of reformist, pro-business governments that have actively courted overseas investment.
