This concerns the countries Poland, the Czech and Slovak Republic and Hungary. The last time we heard about the Visegrád Group was in February 2020, when they were called the „saviours“ of the German export balance. The German companies have recently invested ca.90 billions euros in this region, especially in the modern production plants and in the staff training.

II. V4 – full speed ahead
The Visegrád countries Hungary, the Czech Republic, Poland and the Slovak Republic are constantly becoming more influential in central Europe – last but not least due to the BREXIT also within the EU. This politically as well as economically.
The four Visegrád countries build together the most dynamically growing region in Europe. According to the Eurostat, in 2018 the GNP of the EU countries grew by 2,0 percent, the GNP of the Eurozone by 1,9 percent. The corresponding figures for the V4: the Czech Republic 2,9 percent, the Slovak Republic 4,1 percent, Hungary 4,9 percent, Poland 5,1 percent.
Hungary pushed itself with 5,2 percent growth in the first half year of 2019 on the top of the EU countries – three of the four most growing European economies belonged to the group V4.
Therefore, the law office RIEDIGER. legal | tax will extend its expertise to Hungary. The focus will be on inbound projects to Hungary as well as on outbound projects from Hungary.
