CEE Club MeetingLondon, April 11st, 2017

Overview

Political climate in CEE: can it jeopardise the current growth?

According to the recent research reports 2016 reached the volume of some EUR 12bn in investment markets across the CEE region. Investment flows in 2017 are expected to be close to or higher than 2016’s. However, there are risks to consider.

Will this consistent growth be interrupted by the political climate in CEE (esp. Romania, Poland)? Will European disintegration jeopardize the current trends? Brexit: any chance for CEE to benefit from it?

GRI Club Members will gather on 11th of April to share their opinions, thoughts at the meeting in traditional GRI format.

Registration

Attendance is reserved exclusively for GRI Club Members.
