FDI did not prove resilient to financial deleveraging in 2013. Inter-company loans and capital reserves were repatriated especially from the NMS resulting in low FDI inflow figures. In 2014 the region is exposed to two main factors that will drive FDI into opposing directions. One is the acceleration of economic growth which spurs FDI. The other is the Ukraine/Russia conflict which depresses economic growth and increases investment risk in the effected countries.
