After the economic crisis, what does the future hold for pharmaceutical companies in Europe?

The pharmaceutical sector's dependence on the economic situation of European countries proved to be crippling for the industry during the 2008-09 crisis, and once again during the sovereign debt crisis of 2011-12. Particularly weakened by reduced health expenditure in Europe, pharmaceutical companies are now looking to revive, expand into new markets and invest in niche markets to break the deadlock.

Romania at the front line of economic growth in 2013 - but will it catch up after the contraction in 2014?

Romania's economic performance has made it one of the leaders in Europe's recovery. Its growth has exceeded expectations, with GDP rising by 3.5% in 2013. Significant contributions came from the agricultural and industrial sectors, in particular from car production supplying mainly foreign customers. Although Romania will not continue this pace of growth in 2014, the outlook remains positive.

The Turkish economy - what to expect in 2014

Prior to the forthcoming presidential elections in August 2014, Coface is cautious in its assessment of corporate risks in Turkey. If political tensions rise again, as happened in December and January, investors may flee the country which could result in a fluctuation in Forex markets. Such a situation would negatively impact the corporate sector's external debt stock, already at a record high.

The archetypal emerging country, Brazil passed the test of the great crisis of 2009 with flying colours. Four years on, social protests have begun to highlight the failure of its growth model. While inequality is on the decline, it remains significant. Because of a tight labour market and major gaps in infrastructure, the infamous "Brazil cost" has placed a heavy burden on business performance.
