In the last forty years, the process of globalization of the world economy has contributed to the rapid growth of foreign direct investment, mainly in developing countries. This phenomenon also occurred in ASEAN (coutries) in the late 80s and the beginning of the 90s of the last century, when the process of transforming their economies began and, therefore, they started to open up to capital inflows in the form of FDI. In this article I have analyzed factors that drive FDI flows to ASEAN, including the analysis of eight panel countries of the region data for the years 1994–2012. The author tries to identify main factors determining the inflow of foreign direct investment. The author verifies two thesis: 1) foreign direct investment in Southeast Asia are affected by the population of the region; 2) the second condition for the inflow of FDI is economic stability in the region.
