Most of the researches are done regarding the developing countries. The countries selected to study which are Czech Republic, Hungary, Latvia, Poland and Slovenia are never been done in any research. Even though most of the research about the impact of poverty in agriculture sector and foreign direct investment have been done in developing countries, but it still can’t be found the research related with these countries. The data used by the researchers is within the period of time of 10 years from 2005 to 2014 of annual time series data.
