PZU

About the Initiative

Growing Europe, a PZU initiative, seeks to recognize and promote Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) as the world’s fastest growing developed market and one that is also its most stable emerging market. By promoting business cooperation among leaders from across CEE the Growing Europe initiative also aims to further the region’s democratic and economic development.

Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) includes over 100 million people in 11 EU countries with a combined GDP of €1,2 trillion. In 2018, CEE’s GDP accounted for almost 20% of economic growth of the European Union. CEE’s tech sector is growing rapidly and the ecosystem is blossoming. Currently there are around 30,000 startups (including 12 unicorns with a combined value of €30 billion).

CEE’s democracies are members of NATO, the Council of Europe, the World Trade Organization, the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank. Seven countries from the region ranked in the top ten fastest growing economies in the European Union. Indeed, CEE offers investors a unique combination of stability and security offered by these institutions with returns that match those of the developing world.
