East Europe Business is probably the broadest region on the GlobalBusinessPitch.com website. Within this grouping you will find the Baltic states and countries of Central Europe (current members of the EU), nations of Southeast Europe, Eastern Europe, as well as nations of Central Asia. A common bond they share is they were all communist states that emerged in the 1990’s after the fall of the Iron Curtain.
Going hand-in-hand with the political and economic transition that occurred in the ensuing decades, each nation grappled new realities of a post-Soviet world. While some nations fared much better than others, volatility of a high risk, high reward economic environment was another characteristic all of these nations shared. Its an environment that still exists in East Europe business today. Investing in a high-growth region rich in resources and skilled labor can be very rewarding over the long-term, but can also punish those who make a bad bet or those who are over-levered during a volatile down-turn in the economy.
