Country Report
The article reports that high foreign direct investment (FDI), with a focus on export-oriented industries, has been a feature of the Czech economy in the last few years. It has now fed through to the boom in exports that is dominating the trade balance. Aside from the boost to both current and future exports, the impressive FDI inflows have also been important as a source of financing for the current account deficit. The main disadvantage of this process is the repatriation of profits and dividend outflows from these foreign companies, which has caused a sizeable deficit in the income balance--CZK12.7bn in April alone.
