Privatization in the Czech Republic has opened the door to foreign investment. Investors, however, have been slow to invest in the Czech Republic because of its relatively weak shareholder protections.

Implementation of broader shareholder protections will perhaps increase confidence in the Czech Republic and stimulate foreign investment.
