Central Europe Top 500 |  2016

Welcome to the Deloitte Central Europe Top 500 ranking and report for 2016 – the 10th edition of this key annual publication, which provides a unique source of insight into the performance of our region’s largest and most important companies. Rather than focus only on the economic trends of the past 12 months, in light of the report’s anniversary, I would like to also look back at some of the significant events that have impacted Central Europe over the past ten years. Deloitte analysis illustrates the economic swings the region has undergone through five distinct periods. At their simplest, these were the continuation of the economic boom that lasted in total from 2002 to 2008, the global economic and financial crisis of 2009, followed in 2010 by a short-lived recovery in our region’s northern Visegrad countries (Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary). Then, in 2011 and 2012, we saw further weakening among northern countries, while those to the south of the region started a mild recovery. And lastly, we saw the start of a considerably stronger economic period in 2013. This continues today, with the countries of South

Eastern Europe lagging some six to nine months behind their northern neighbors. The overriding message from the analysis is that throughout this entire period, GDP growth in countries across our region has consistently outpaced Western Europe. This continues today, with 2016 GDP predictions for Central Europe behind only the Asia Pacific region. The positive forces contributing to this healthy picture include the availability of EU funds, inbound investment and slackening austerity programs. I also believe that the onward march of digitalization – a key focus of this report – is playing a very important role by enabling many of our largest companies to become more efficient, more customer-focused and ultimately more successful. As one interviewee featured in this report told us, “The digital revolution has the potential to completely transform market conditions in different sectors of the economy faster than any other development in the history of business.”

global economies, digitalization is the most powerful enabler with the greatest potential for driving positive change. None of us can ignore the extent to which the continued success of Central Europe’s economy is interlinked with the digital strategies of its leading companies. So it is highly informative to read in this report about the passionate intensity with which our region’s business leaders are helping to shape their companies’ digital futures.

“The majority of countries in CE saw an increase in the rate of their economic growth. The only country whose economy declined in 2015 was Ukraine.“ The results of the 2015 ranking of the 500 largest companies demonstrate that the majority of countries in CE saw an increase in the rate of their economic growth. The only country whose economy declined in 2015 was Ukraine (down by 9.9 per cent), where endurin
