AbstractThe aim of this study is the presentation of a direct foreign investment scale in Visegrad Countries in 2011-2014 based on an analysis of the statistical data from the available domestic and foreign sources and the literature research. It is necessary to answer the question if the Visegrad countries use appropriate factors which stimulate the expansion and what barriers cause that those investments increase very slowly. The process of integration with the EU and the creation of an association that supports common business of Poland, the Czech Republic and Hungary were aimed at strengthening of the economic cooperation among them, including the investment development. Indeed, there has been a considerable increase in foreign investment, but the capital flow among the member countries was and still is relatively small. The Visegrad countries should take advantage of the geographical proximity, cultural similarities and common interests to accelerate the economic development through the mutual economic cooperation.
