The economies that make up Central & Eastern Europe are going through a period of sustained change. GDP growth rates across the region are at least twice those found in Western European markets, and the level of foreign direct investment into the region as a whole is now on a par with FDI into China.

In April 2007, mergermarket canvassed the views of CEOs, CFOs, and Strategy Directors of 100 CEE based companies with an annual turnover exceeding €50m. The survey aimed to uncover Central and Eastern European business leader sentiment on a number of extant market topics. In particular the strategic intentions of the companies surveyed in respect of the M&A activity they are planning, current and potential funding sources, as well as their recent M&A experience.
