Focus Europe Analyses the Main Trend in CEE with the Help of János Tamás Varga.


Focus Europe 2014„After years in the economic doldrums, it seems that the potential is there for the Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) region to lead Europe’s economic growth once again.” Focus Europe, a leading law magazine in the USA (published by American Lawyer Media) analyses the main trend in the region with the help of VJT & Partners Managing Partner János Tamás Varga.

The article „Cautious Optimism” draws attention to the recent economic processes in CEE countries. „According to the Regional Economic Issues report the economies of Central Eastern and Southeastern region are forecast to expand by 2.3 percent in 2014.” A big part of this positive indicator is due to the Hungarian economy, which „has a favorable geographic location which allows investors to reach Europe and the Middle East directly,” says János Tamás Varga. The managing partner points out that “In terms of labor and real estate costs, Hungary compares very favorably to Western Europe and North America and while in Hungary the average gross wage is much lower, the productivity of the labor force is one of the highest within the CEE region.” Read more...
