Not FDI but EU and other international funds have been the main external financing resources of investments in the region recently. In 2015, the FDI inflow to Central, East and Southeast Europe (CESEE) fell to its lowest level since 2008, while global FDI recovered. The decline was especially severe in the EU member states of Central and Eastern Europe (EU-CEE) as well as in Russia, while expansions were recorded in the Western Balkans and Turkey. Forecasts for FDI in 2016 point downwards again, because the international environment may not support capacity expansions and also economic growth in most of the CESEE will be less robust than last year.
