    While Turkey’s share prices (on average) have already overcome past highs, the region of Western Balkans (countries of ex Yugoslavia: Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Montenegro, Macedonia) remains the last undiscovered investment region in the heart of Europe. It lies between Central Europe and Turkey and it is very close to Venice and Vienna (only 1 and 2 hours drive by car from the border of the region, map available at: http://www.bef-fund.com/ ), but the level of foreign investment has been very low till now.

    Regional indices are lagging behind the most in the whole world, as some of them are at only 10-15% of 2007’s highs.
