The investment plays the main role in development in country’s economy. Given expensive and marginal resources of capital in the country very important role falls on foreign direct investment. It brings not only financial resources, but also technologies, experts and the experience of management. The result of this – well paid job places, steady revenues of budget and technological development of country. The local businessmen also wins, by using modern foreigners methods and knowledge about world markets, they can explore their business or create new one in similar or different field.
But this is theoretical, how about reality practices? It can be so that rich countries just use poor ones, by bringing out excess profits, and so leaving only poverty and slippage. Besides, it is not a secret that a flow of cheats, looking for trustful and corrupt officers, goes to poor countries.
Fast flood of FDI globally "talks" in favor of them. In many countries the liberalization of investment is observed, which merge into stimulation of investment. And the most interesting is that in developed countries foreign direct investment grows all the time.
Foreign direct investment (FDI) has grown dramatically and is now the largest and most stable source of private capital for developing countries and economies in transition, accounting for nearly 50 percent of all those flows. Meanwhile, the growing role of FDI in host countries has been accompanied by a change of attitude, from critical wariness toward multinational corporations to sometimes-uncritical enthusiasm about their role in the development process.

Foreign Direct Investment is the category of international investment in which a resident entity in one economy obtains a lasting interest in an enterprise resident in another. A lasting interest implies the existence of a long-term relationship between the direct investor and the enterprise and a significant degree of influence by the investor on the management of the enterprise.

FDI implies that the investor exerts a significant degree of influence on the management of the enterprise resident in the other economy.

FDI also can be defined an internalized investment flow which includes capital assets as well as intangible assets. The investor keeps control of the subsidiary that it has established and derives benefits from its investment through:
- Increase in sales (either on local markets or through exports to third markets);
- Reduction of costs of production;
- Increase in production efficiency of the group as a whole.
The foreign investor assumes the operational risks of its enterprise.
FDI is firm- or sector-specific, that is, host countries cannot decide on the destination of these investments. ...
