Bulletin of Central and Eastern Europe: Germany-Central and Eastern Europe: The Old Continent's New Economic Core?

One of the most important phenomenon on the European continent after the end of the Cold War has been the re-inclusion of the Central and Eastern Europe into the German industrial bloodstream. It has not only resulted in an economic integration, but also in close political relations between the regional capitals and Berlin. The third decade will witness a development of the new EU's integration core based on strong ties between Germany and Poland together with the other Visegrad Group states or a significant loosening of these relationship as a result of building new economic alternatives, including with non-EU countries.
