Europe

The time has never been riper to explore business opportunities in Europe. The EU has made it easier and cheaper to set up new companies and environmental licenses, authorizations and notifications are simpler to acquire than ever before. The unified European market-place means one can easily buy and sell goods all over European Union without export and import fees. Businesses looking to expand into Europe have various profitable options such as joint ventures, building franchises, pursuing production agreements and more. 

Countries in Europe

The EU is one of the wealthiest and largest economies in the world, comprised of 50 different countries populated by more than 740 million people. Although wealth varies from country to country, with the Eastern countries being generally less affluent than the Western, even Europe’s poorest members are far better off in terms of GDP than residents of developing countries on other continents. Opportunities abound throughout the continent, with some of Europe’s wealthiest and most-developed economies being Norway, Sweden, the Netherlands, Liechtenstein, Monaco, Luxembourg, Andorra and Switzerland.

Companies Investing in Europe

After a long slump, analysts are heralding a new golden-era for Europe and declaring it a great time to invest in the region – as many leading companies are already doing. Resolution of political strife, strong growth figures and a pickup in inflation are all contributing factors to this upturn. The Euro Stoxx 600 index is rising steadily, and the telecoms, utilities and industrials sectors are enjoying huge growth. While the energy sector is recovering more slowly from its depression, there is a general consensus that the increase in nominal GDP across Europe will lead to strong performances by European companies.
