CEE in the spotlight combines the most important ingredients in the CEE region’s recipe for success. Our goal is to provide macroeconomic insights for decision making for the international business community. The series gives a balanced perspective on our region, taking into account new trends and transformation drivers.
The series examines challenges facing the Central and Eastern European region, but also its great potential. Russian full-scale aggression has focused CEE decision makers to consider longer-term weaknesses against a backdrop of surging inflation, a looming energy crisis and an economic slowdown. Despite these weaknesses and challenges, the CEE in the spotlight series also looks to a bright future in the region. The IMF, for instance, predicts that real GDP growth in CEE in 2027 will be higher than average for G7 countries, which gives substantial grounds for regional optimism despite the turbulence.
