Foreign investments in Ostrava are prospering

6/3 2018

The prestigious fDi Magazine (published by fDi Intelligence, a division of The Financial Times Group) regularly evaluates the investment environment in cities and regions throughout the world. In the “fDi European Cities and Regions of the Future 2018/2019” rankings, Ostrava was ranked 6th in the category “Top10 fDi strategies”. The gala award ceremony will be held as part of the MIPIM 2018 investment event.

Ostrava’s Mayor Tomáš Macura responded to Ostrava’s excellent ranking: “Thanks to our strategic position in the heart of Europe, at the meeting-point of major transcontinental transportation routes, we are a highly attractive and sought-after destination for new investments. Although automotive investments still play a dominant role in our region, we are also becoming a major hub for shared business services centres – which are now a dynamically growing sector of the city’s economy.”
