2 EU BUSINESS NEWS / Q4 2019 Editor’s Note , Welcome to the Q4 edition of EU Business News. As always, we are a quarterly publication designed to showcase the latest updates and insights from across the European Union. This issue we’ve chosen to focus on the idea of expansion. Whether it be through entering new markets organically, opening new offices, or through mergers and acquisitions, European businesses are fully capitalising on their ability to grow, become better, and reach more people. There’s a thirst for it. Whether you work in an emerging tech start-up or an established law firm, there are opportunities available. Good news and trends abound, despite the apparent omnipresence of economic volatility. So, as we start to welcome in a new decade, it might be best to focus on the ever-present idea of growth and expansion. Of innovation and improvement. There are businesses across the continent who are driving best practices, seeking out new revenue streams, building their client base. They are thriving. We’ve included just a few of them in this issue. Meanwhile, the team here at EU Business sincerely hope that you enjoy reading this insightful issue. Please do get in touch if you have any thoughts- it is always a delight to hear from our readers. We hope you have a fantastic New Year.
