    In yearning for stability, the countries of Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) can take some comfort from their improved economic performance, despite the surrounding turbulence and the widespread shift towards reasserting political control: national identity, borders and domestic finances being the targets.

    Boosted by eurozone recovery and lower oil prices, CEE growth rates in GDP this year range between 2% and 4%, providing a fillip to commercial activity for local independent firms. As in much of Europe, they’re still waiting for investment and growth to return to pre crisis levels.
