FOREIGN INVESTORS FROM EMERGING ECONOMIES: THE GEOGRAPHY OF TURKISH INVESTMENTS IN ROMANIA

Journal Title: Revista Romana de Geografie Politica - Year 2015, Vol 17, Issue 2

Abstract

This study investigates the main characteristics and patterns as well as the geographical distribution of Turkish investments in Romania. The study found that Turkish investors came in three different waves, each with its own characteristics and geographical distribution. Most of the Turkish investments were found to concentrate in the southern part of Romania which is closer to Turkey suggesting the importance of geographical and cultural factors in location decision. The study also found that Turkish investments cluster not only in some more developed counties (such as Bucharest or Ilfov) but also in some counties which may qualify among the poorest in Romania.
