Investment volumes into the CEE-6 region rose by 4% in the first half of this year compared to H1 2017, largely due to the growing Polish market, the latest report from Colliers International reveals.
The six countries in Central-Eastern Europe (Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Slovakia) turned in a total investment flow of €5.6 bn in H1, with Poland accounting for 113% growth compared to H1 2017.
Slovakia likewise recorded strong growth (+117%), while Hungarian and Czech volumes were noticeably weak due to low supply. Both countries registered a 58% decline year-on-year.
Volumes in the office sector grew particularly strongly (€2.28 bn in H1), almost on a par with the retail sector (€2.6 bn). However, Colliers’ analysis shows a big drop of investments in both hotel and industrial schemes.
