Emerging Europe invited 70 global location experts and foreign direct investment advisers to weigh up the various merits of the 75 cities in the emerging Europe region which are either national capitals or have a population of more than 200,000 inhabitants. This year, 51 of those experts – many of whom are members of the Site Selectors Guild – cast votes, more than double last year’s number of 25.
“We want to promote opportunities in the region’s cities, and one of the main reasons we organise this survey is to make location experts, who take important decisions regarding where to locate investment, take a long, hard look at the emerging Europe region. I think that this perception-based survey demonstrates just how much these experts already know about our region, and I am glad that we have taken a key role in bringing that about” says Andrew Wrobel, Emerging Europe‘s founding partner.
The city attracts investors with its good location, low cost of business activity, and qualified staff. We have a lot to offer due to a number of activities supported by the city authorities, aimed at creating good living and development conditions.
