Out of the total, the equity investments amounted to 3.899 billion euros and inter-company lending recorded a net value of 182 million euros, according to the statement.
Romania attracted over one billion euros more in 2016 than in 2015 when investments reached 3.035 billion euros, a record after 2009.
