Abstract

The foreign direct investment movement is becoming increasingly important nowadays. Various studies are conducted to determine the influence of foreign direct investments on certain countries. That is why it is important and useful to evaluate and compare how foreign direct investments affect the economic indicators of the Baltic countries - countries having similar economies. Methods used in the analysis are: logical comparative and generalization methods, systematic literature analysis and methods of mathematical statistics. The results have showed that foreign direct investments have positive influence on economies through gross domestic product and labour productivity growth in all Baltic countries, though foreign direct investments do not influence the unemployment rate in all Baltic countries
