Below provides a profile of the Europe regional market overall, and interesting facts and information about issues important to both Turkey and foreign executives working in Eastern Europe,
Russia, & CIS.
The CEE region spans a vital economic region stretching from Poland in the north down to Turkey in the south. Despite of cultural differences and a wide variety of economic maturity, these countries are linked by proximity, and the resulting interdependence on resources and services. Each country (except Turkey) is a member of the European Union.
There is a unique, multinational infrastructure project underway that will further maximize each country's potential for growth: the Pan-European Transport Corridors, a network of international trade routes that will make it easier and more efficient for nations to do business with each other. This remarkable system will have a tremendously positive impact on the emerging economies of the CEE as it connects them with more developed economies.
The main trading partner for many of these countries is the largest economy in Europe – Germany – so their growth prospects are tied to that country's export-led growth. Growth prospects for Germany and the CEE region are guarded but positive as they emerge from the recent economic downturn. An increase in industrial output, rising energy prices, and smart fiscal policies is fueling a slow but steady resurgence.
Boyden maintains a stronghold in each of the most critical cities throughout the CEE region. Each local office, owned by residents, has proprietary knowledge of its territory. In turn, these local offices share their ideas and strategies with each other and with the entire Boyden global community. And each has access to Boyden's global perspective and resources. In a way, Boyden is also a Pan-European Transport Corridor, making the most of its local and global connections to support and enhance the health of the entire region.
The Boyden CEE/CIS offices are located in:
Russia is defined as a transcontinental country, due to its huge latitudinal span and relationship to the CIS partnership.
