The central objective of this paper is to analyse the determinants of investments, as they have been described by the economic theory specific to the field of foreign direct investments. We consider that the matter of foreign direct investments and of their determinants as one of great importance both for the Romanian economy, and for the economy of other countries. It requires elaborate and multilateral approaches, not just on the side of the investors, but also on the side of the public entities that aim to stimulate these flows. The evolution of the foreign direct investments differs from one period to another due to several factors resulting from the evolution of the economic and social systems. The multinational companies have different aptitudes in the mater of making foreign direct investments, even in countries that are equivalent in terms of attractiveness for foreign direct investments. Besides to the traditional factors pertaining to the level of the market, population size and incomes, general economic performance of the economy, there also are other factors that may influence, under specific circumstances, the size of the foreign direct investments.
