Investment process effectiveness, which along with investment risk and investment potential defines the investment attractiveness of a region, and, therefore, the investment climate, is also characterized by the growth of regional gross product through investments in physical and human capital. The investment attractiveness of a region is determined by comparison of two parameters reflecting the conditions in which investors’ activities take place: investment potential and investment risk. The amount of risks associated with investment activities is large, while uncertainty of their occurrence compels investors to evaluate the investment potential of a region as uncertain, too. Eliminating uncertainty in investment risk evaluation and increasing investment attractiveness of regions may be possible through application of logical and stochastic methods of evaluation, to the author's mind.
