Abstract Foreign Direct Investment has become a driving force behind economic globalization. The benefits of FDI are immense, bringing with it refined management techniques, economic growth, and advanced technologies. With its growth-enhancing capacity, FDI has played a significant role in setting transitional European economies onto the path of convergence with the European Union. Foreign direct investment's capacity to enhance the productivity and efficiency of the host country, as well as its ability to stimulate institutional development, are changing both the economic and political landscapes in Central and Eastern Europe. When the implicit requirements that FDI requires from the receiving country is matched with the EU accession-driven reforms, they fit together in a mutually reinforcing system that is essential to the goals of transition. By examining eighteen transitional European economies from the year 1995-2004, this study tested numerous determinants of FDI to see how these countries can best lure foreign capital to their economy.
