$ 975.00

A comprehensive overview of Central Europe. Learn about the outlook and main drivers of Central Europe (including country outlooks for key markets) as well as scenarios to monitor in 2018.

Overview, Table of Contents & Sample Pages below


Central European (CE) markets (including countries in both Central and southeastern Europe) will continue to enjoy strong growth in 2018 on the back of robust domestic consumption and elevated demand from the eurozone.

The region remains relatively well insulated from global risks affecting emerging markets, which strengthens its economic resilience in comparison to other regional markets.

A pick-up in EU funds will further contribute to the attractiveness of Central European markets, so businesses should expect increased competition as more firms seek to capitalize on those developments.

Growth is expected to remain strong beyond 2018, meaning that businesses should adopt long-term strategic plans to fully maximize profits in Central European markets.
