Summary/Abstract: For the last few decades a large number of countries, developed as well as developing ones, have become included in flows of foreign direct investments. Until recently the investments were directed only from developed towards less developed countries but since the end of the 20th century the developing countries have become more significant foreign investors. A certain number of countries have been more successful in attracting foreign capital in comparison to others. The question is what are the reasons and which are the most important factors that investors consider while choosing a foreign location to invest to. Results of foreign research referring to this subject are presented in this paper as well as their comparison to results of similar researches conducted by the authors in Croatia.
