The European Private Equity and Venture Capital Association (EVCA) today releases its “Central and Eastern Europe Statistics 2011" report, which once again demonstrates the region’s strength and resilience and underpins its strong potential.

The latest edition of Deloitte Central Europe Private Equity Confidence Survey: “The new normal"

Private equity and venture capital funds focused on Central and Eastern Europe attracted €645m of new funds for investment into companies in the region during 2010, up more than 60% on the previous year. This was mainly driven by venture and growth capital focused funds. The value of divestments (at investment cost) grew by nearly 130% to €300m.
