We are going to grow

Czech CEO Survey

The Czech CEO Survey 2015 has clearly shown that CEOs focus on growth. The common lamentation over the crisis is already past. Each company is unique and searches for its own way to success.

Historically, this threat replaced traditional themes such as corruption, bureaucracy or high tax burden, for the first time.

Approaching storm. Report on transformation

The second danger is caused by the very strong links of the region with western European economies and with the fate of the euro.

The significance of the Western Europe’s recession for the CEE countries obviously depends on the extent to which their economies are open to trade and dependent on the exports to southern European eurozone members. Moreover, CEE countries with little room to manoeuvre in their macroeconomic policy will not be able to compensate for external shocks with any domestic stimulus.

Approaching storm. Report on transformation

As recessionary triggers, along with waves of the current financial instability, are coming mainly from the eurozone, the CEE region faces two main risks.
