The office market in Europe is flourishing, with 2018 total volumes at the same level as those of 2017, by far the most active year in the decade.

The four main German markets combined dropped 8% but still represented 3.04m sq m, well above the long-term average.

Very high results were achieved in Vienna (+54%), Luxembourg, Lisbon (+21%), Milan and Warsaw (+10%).Read more

Success in the hotel business is governed by the RevPar rate: the amount of revenue the hotel generates per available room per month. To succeed, you need to fill as many of your rooms as possible at the maximum possible rate. The challenge is this: if you fill all of your rooms all of the time, the rooms begin to show signs of wear. And if you want to raise rates as much as possible, you have to have quality rooms with the latest technology and equipment. To keep the rooms fresh and modern, you have to refurbish them regularly. How do you maintain revenue and occupancy while still keeping your rooms and conference facilities above market standard?

An article of E15 published on March 12 on steel and aluminum tarrifs (in Czech language).
Last Thursday, the Trump administration announced its plan to place tariffs on steel and aluminum imports. The tariffs are intended to raise the production in US steel and aluminum plants to 80%, which is considered the minimum output necessary for survival. If the tariffs take effect, the EU has declared it will place reciprocal tariffs on US products of similar export value. The issue underneath the tariff decision- global overcapacity- is real, but imposing global tariffs does not appear to help solve the problem. An internationally coordinated response using targeted tariffs or quotas might be the best way to keep the economic and geopolitical damage to the minimum.
