  • Chart of the month: EU-CEE well represented in EU property market boom

  • Opinion Corner: UK economy after Brexit: What is the model? 
    by Richard Grieveson
    Thousands of newspaper articles and studies have been written about the political chess of Brexit, but relatively little attention has been paid to an arguably more important question: what will Brexit mean for the UK growth model? For decades, the UK has relied heavily on FDI inflows, much of which probably would not have materialised had the country not been part of the EU. Outside the bloc, the UK’s growth model faces a much more uncertain future.
  • Austria’s evolving trade and transport links with CESEE
    by Julia Grübler
    This year we celebrate 30 years of the re-integration of the Western and Eastern European economies. Since the fall of the Iron Curtain, EU members of the former ‘Eastern Bloc’ have become major trading partners for Austria. Today, Austria’s surplus in goods trade with the region is compensated by a deficit in transport services trade. The transport sector and the EU’s infrastructure continue to expand, but so do related environmental challenges.
  • Austria-Slovakia cross-border cooperation 
    by Doris Hanzl-Weiss
    Since 1989, diverse economic, cultural and social links have developed between Austria and Slovakia. These links have been supported and strengthened by EU-sponsored cross-border cooperation projects, as well as the close proximity of the two countries' capital cities, Vienna and Bratislava.
