Business risks and opportunities in CEE

18.00 - 21.30

Business Risks and Opportunities in Central and Eastern Europe was the focus of discussion at The Mark Luxury Hotel in Prague on 26 May, at an event attended by more than 40 business leaders.

The seminar, presented by TMF Group in collaboration with KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and the Netherlands-Czech Chamber of Commerce, featured keynote speeches by Central Eastern Europe (CEE) experts and the Dutch Ambassador in Prague.

Frédéric Labiche, Managing Director of TMF Group Czech Republic shared findings from the commissioned Economist Intelligence Unit’s paper on CEE; about the business environment for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). The findings included the positive news that business conditions are strengthening in several countries in CEE; particularly in the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia.

Paul Taylor, Central and Eastern Europe Regional Director at UK Trade & Investment talked about CEE growth potential in the global market, and provided practical case study examples. Paul Taylor also detailed what he sees as the “keys to success” for doing business in the region, including a high level of cooperation with Embassies and Chambers of Commerce, and implementing the lessons learned from successful exporters and investors.

H.E. Eduard W.V.M. Hoeks, Dutch Ambassador in Prague launched the event and actively participated in the open discussion, bringing practical business examples and his own outlook on business risks and opportunities in the region.

Keynote speakers joined the event’s open discussion section, addressing a wide variety of questions posed to them by an engaged and enthusiastic business audience.

TMF Group would like to thank event partners KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and the Netherlands-Czech Chamber of Commerce, Chez Greg, Heineken, NLSÝR and The Mark Luxury Hotel Prague.
