Central and Eastern Europe can look ahead to the future with confidence. The fundamentals for the region are positive, with strong economic growth, high employment and booming consumer confidence. All these factors are boosting optimism about the region's prospects and attracting more foreign investors. Demand is around the €14 bn mark. Investment flows are at record highs, supported by 'lower for longer' interest rates.
Are there any clouds on the horizon? Will investors' focus on the office market continue? Will Poland continue to power ahead of the rest of the CEE? To what extent will slowing economic growth in Germany affect the region? Are investors looking beyond the region's capitals to regional cities? Which sectors and cities are they likely to favour? CEE investors have been more active recently, improving the market's liquidity. Are they at an advantage or do they face a struggle competing with foreign capital? Will the retail sector benefit from positive consumer sentiment and rising wages? The residential sector has seen high demand and price increases: will this trend continue? The logistics sector has seen some big ticket-deals: is its growth unstoppable, given the region's strategic location between East and West? Are increasing labour shortages going to be a problem? Infrastructure has much improved: is there more to be done to support investment? What about political uncertainty - will Hungary's and Poland's policies and tensions with the European Union be a deterrent or will investors focus on the positive economic fundamentals?
