The global trend toward digitalization and virtualization also defines the technology, media and telecommunications scene in South East Europe. The role of technology in just about every industry is ever more crucial and as products get more intelligent, businesses and policy makers have recognized the importance of fostering a flourishing high-tech sector to remain competitive in today’s global marketplace.
Regulatory issues continue to hamper the region’s development, however harmonization with European Union law has helped accelerate this process. In recent years, this sector has attracted a wealth of investment from foreign and domestic investment funds, private equity investors, IT companies, service providers, telecom providers and manufacturers. The investment opportunities in this sector are abundant.
From major privatization opportunities – the region’s last remaining incumbents still need to be privatized – to the use of technology in infrastructure, energy, healthcare, government and beyond to innovation, broadcasting, content production and digital service proliferation, the possibilities are endless.
