Despite strong economic growth in the region, inflows of FDI fell quite sharply in 2017, and a further decline could be on the cards this year. However, disinvestment by foreign investors is largely being replaced by national capital, particularly in the Visegrad countries. Trends in FDI indicate that countries such as Romania, Serbia and Macedonia are becoming increasingly integrated into the Central European manufacturing hub.
