Helsinki, Finland, 2009/10/19 - Global Intelligence Alliance (GIA), a global strategic market intelligence and advisory group, has published a white paper on the topic of Market Intelligence (MI) for Central and Eastern Europe (CEE).
CEE countries have been a rapidly developing economic area in recent years. The countries of the region underwent a transition to western-style economies in the 1990s and began growing at a pace vastly exceeding the EU average. Accession of 10 CEE countries to the EU in 2004 and 2007, and the removal of trade barriers with “old” EU countries, made the CEE region a hotspot for international companies. Nevertheless, the diversity of cultures, languages, economic structures, and ways of doing business means that having a keen understanding of how to conduct MI in the region is an absolute necessity.
Compiled by GIA Members, EasyLink Business Services in Prague, Czech Republic and GatewayBaltic in Latvia, the paper helps to specifically address questions such as:
• Which countries are worth targeting for different industries?
• What are some recent developments?
• What are the 10 markets that deserve everyone's attention, and why?
• What are some specific challenges in obtaining reliable market intelligence?
• What are some possible solutions?
It also provides three case studies from the CEE region for readers. The complete GIA white paper, Market Intelligence for Central and Eastern Europe is available for download for free from our website.
