Join the Department For International Trade in meeting experts from Slovenia, Slovakia, Romania and the Czech Republic in 1:1 meetings to explore your export potential in these exciting markets.

Why Central and Eastern Europe?

• Uniquely positioned to access 100 million+ consumers.
• Largely untapped multiple sector potential with pro-foreign investment governments.
• OECD project average GDP growth @ 3.6% for 2018 (UK 1.2%)
• CEE countries are members of the Single European Market so barriers to trade are few and low.
• Continued EU investment provides further international opportunities.
• Strengthening institutions, developing public services, improved infrastructure.
• Flexible, educated, ambitious workforces.

These four dynamic economies have over 40 million consumers, with high GDP growth (Slovenia 4.5%, Romania 4.3%, Czech Republic 3.2%). They are stable, safe and accessible EU markets - only 2-3 hours away by low cost carriers.

British products and the British brand are appreciated for quality, tradition and style, with English widely spoken and used in international business. There are huge opportunities for West Midlands businesses across a range of sectors, with local distributors and end-users hungry for innovative, value-added British products and services - no wonder 19% of Midlands exporters reported growth in CEE sales in 2016!
