Industrials and Manufacturing
Central and Eastern Europe is home to a long tradition of engineering and manufacturing. The region benefits from major international investment across all industries. Despite a slight decline in output since the beginning of the recession, global direct investment in the industrials sector and sustained export revenue have ensured the continued economic growth of our region. The tradition of manufacturing will most certainly continue in this part of the world.
