Industry & Manufacturing
Shifting global economics is increasingly impacting industry and manufacturing. Countries traditionally regarded as preferred manufacturing bases have seen their cost competitiveness deteriorate, which has opened a window of advantage for the countries in our region.
South East Europe has demonstrated that it can be competitive in certain industry and manufacturing sectors, particularly in apparel and automotive parts manufacturing and global business process and technology outsourcing, and with a geographic location efficient for serving neighbouring markets like the EU and Middle East, the region has been the logical choice of several strategic investors.
