By bne IntelliNews March 14, 2013
The Netherlands was the largest foreign investor in the Czech Republic in 2012 investing CZK 89.4bn (EUR 3.5bn), data from the Czech central bank showed. Overall the country attracted CZK 207.4bn in foreign direct investments in 2012, the highest figure for the last eight years and well above the previous year's level of CZK 41bn. The reason for the high amount of investments from the Netherlands was the fact that German utility RWE transferred the assets of its Czech pipeline operator Net4Gas from RWE Transgas under its Dutch subsidiary RWE Gas International. The purchasing price was CZK 52.3bn. More than 90% of the FDI inflow came from European countries (CZK 196.9bn, up seven-fold on the year), followed by North American countries investing CZK 10bn, up 59% on the year. By individual countries, the second biggest investor in the Czech Republic was Germany with investments of CZK 32.4bn. Third ranked the UK boosting its investments by 313% y/y to CZK 15.7bn in 2012.
