Investment Promotion

East Invest seeks to promote and facilitate economic cooperation and investment between the European Union and the Eastern Partnership countries, and between the latter.

In the frame of the project, a series of “investment intelligence” activities are being undertaken. The main objectives of these activities are to:

  • Identify sectors of joint interest for EU and Eastern Partnership partners
  • Contribute to a global positioning of the region
  • Promote the Eastern Partnership countries national economic strategies
  • Highlight investment opportunities in Eastern countries
  • Contribute to the East Invest SME support activities

The activities consist in :

  • the identification of the priority sectors to drive exports in each of the EaP countries and for the region
  • the presentation of Countries snapshot on the web (main indicators, strategic sectors, maps)
  • 6 country Investment Maps (investors guides) on the economic and investment opportunities, locations and strategies
  • the development of a strategy for further investment intelligence activities for East Invest
  • the Mobilisation of different stakeholders involved in the investment promotion process, resulting finally in enhanced ownership, information dissemination and participation during the investor conferences.

The webpages that feature in this investment promotion section present country snapshots of the 6 Eastern Partnership countries, offering the reader an insight into general economic information about the country (its profile, position in international rankings…) and into the sectors that have been identified as strategic for investment promotion under East Invest.

For each sector, a general outlook is given and the strategic direction and specific schemes and incentives are described, prior to quoting a series of business opportunities and some success stories.

The sector outlook closes with useful links and contacts.
