Central and Eastern Europe (“CEE”) has become an increasingly attractive region for international investors targeting high growth assets within the EU. Many CEE countries have favourbale tax regimes to attract foreign investment, and the core CEE region is witnessing an economic boom that investors are keen to be a part of.
However, while some investors may assume that business throughout the EU should be relatively safe, EU member states in the CEE region can present heightened risks, which may be overlooked. Against that backdrop, we invite you to a session hosted by Wolf Theiss and Debevoise & Plimpton, in which we explore the key themes behind counterparty due diligence for investing in CEE, specifically focusing on opportunities in Bulgaria, Hungary and Romania.
The session* includes analysis of the key local issues in play, as well as discussion of the key international anti-corruption compliance aspects to consider when entering the CEE market.
