The region’s population of 1.8 million is one of Europe’s youngest and fastest growing with 53 per cent of the population under the age of 40.

There is an enthusiastic and steady stream of smart, talented people for knowledge-based companies seeking a strong workforce.

Our investors tell us that labour turnover is very low.

The country’s education system has long been recognised as among the best in Europe.
