This study examines the relationship between FDI inflows and economic growth in Eastern European countries (EEC) during the transition period from 1992 to 2007. After observing some unique characteristics of post-Soviet transition economies, the theory based on the Solow growth model assumes that FDI inflows should have a positive effect of the economic growth of these countries. The study uses a panel data regression estimation process to determine the effects of FDI inflow and other theoretically relevant variables on the economic growth of (EEC). A fixed effects panel data estimation process revealed that FDI indeed was a source of economic growth in EEC during the transition period.
