This article addresses the issue of changes in tax legislation in our country over the last 20 months, in view of the effect they have on the level of foreign investment. The article presents, besides the actual legislative changes and the evolution registered in this period by foreign investments, also the fiscal pressure in the field of contributions, VAT and corporate income tax.
