Industrials and Manufacturing

There exists both a long-standing tradition of industry and a continued dedication to engineering and manufacturing in Central and Eastern Europe. As a result, our region is benefitting from major international investment across all industry. There has been some decline in output since the beginning of the recession, but global direct investment in the industrials sector and sustained export revenue are major keys to the continued economic growth of our region. The tradition of manufacturing will most certainly continue in this part of the world.
