Macroeconomic insights for decision making in Central and Eastern Europe

CEE in the spotlight

cee in the spotlight

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.
