Abstract: This article discusses the effect of foreign direct investment on the corporate sector in the Czech Republic. The analysis uses subaggregated corporate data from a unique Deutsche Bundesbank database containing an almost complete sample of German enterprises that invested in the Czech Republic between 1996 and 2004. Attention was given to two issues: the role of intra-group financing in foreign-owned corporations and the life cycle of direct investments.
