How will Croatia’s new government impact the construction sector?

by Property Forum
It’s at last becoming possible to assess the consequences for Croatia’s construction sector of the country’s July 2020 elections.

by Property Forum
Trei Real Estate GmbH and JLL jointly published a new market report on retail parks and convenience centres in Poland, according to which the segment has followed an upward trend for years, and not even the coronavirus pandemic has impacted its performance. One of the reasons for this is that the stores located here often stock food and everyday products.
