The speed of change sweeping through Eastern Europe in the late 1980s and early 1990s took the world by surprise. After decades of looking inwards, markets started to open up in East European countries, and the region began to welcome foreign investment. The report looks at the textile and clothing industries in the region as a whole, and in seven individual countries. It gives a brief overview of each country's political and economic features and provides analyses of the textile and clothing industries in terms of: history, location and size; production trends; material supply, technology and manpower; foreign trade; joint ventures; and future prospects
