  • The foreign direct investment (FDI) is considered as an important incentive for economic growth and development of the states, especially for the developing ones. The FDI include the following components: greenfield investment (GI), mergers and acquisitions and international finance projects, each of them presenting different features and evolution patterns during the pandemic crisis. The greenfield investment suppose the creation of a new company or the establishment of units abroad and it could be considered a form of entry on a new market where a company have a high degree of control over its activities abroad. The global foreign direct investment were affected by the international pandemic crisis. Especially, the greenfield investments in developing countries (industry and infrastructure projects) were affected severelly. Despite the pessimistic prospects, in 2021 there was registered a recover of the FDI at the global level (especially on the developed economies) but the greenfield investment still remained under the pre-crisis level. Considering that the foreign investment are vital for ensuring a sustainable development in different regions of the world, the increase of foreign investment flows in order to support the recovery from the crisis became a policy priority for all states and at the global level. In this article it is presented a global outlook along with recent evolutions and patterns registered by the greenfield investment at the global level, taking into consideration the effects of the pandemic crisis but also the particularities and risks involved by this type of investment compared with others components of the FDI.
