    • LETTER FROM THE PUBLISHER Dear Readers,INTRODUCTION It is no coincidence that the Czech Republic is among the countries with the greatest inflow of foreign capital in the region of Central and Eastern Europe. Czechs are known for their emphasis on quality and professionalism, their desire to learn new things and their ability to achieve the highest standards of production quality. We are bringing you the latest edition of City Invest Czech, the essential investor’s guide to the Czech Republic. This publication, together with the extensive range of services we offer to investors, is the key to tapping into the Czech Republic’s potential. City Invest Czech provides a unique and comprehensive overview of the Czech Republic’s investment envi- ronment with demographic information, basic statistical data, a list of industrial zones and a list of the leading dynamic companies in each region of the country together with listings of Class-A office spaces and office- and retail-space rental rates. CzechInvest plays a crucial role in helping foreign investors establish their businesses in the Czech Republic. The agency provides incoming investors with information services, support in obtaining incentives, identification of suitable investment locations and other supportive consulting services.

    • REAL ESTATE MARKET IN THE CZECH REPUBLICINTRODUCTION The Czech real estate market has gone through strong development in the last decade years and has reached the dividing line between being an emer- ging and mature market. The rapid speculative expansion of the Czech industrial market has been slowed this year by the world economic recession, which has stabilised the whole market, especially from a supply/demand perspective. The Czech Republic has always benefited from its comparative advantages such as its safe investment environment, central location within the EU, dense high quality infrastructure, skilled workforce that has a high share of secondary and tertiary education, combined with favourable labour costs and price stability. All of these factors help the Czech Republic remain attractive for many forms of investment and attract many new companies interested in setting up operations. It also factors into many foreign and institutional developers and investors being active in the Czech Republic. The presence of experienced developers with significant track records gives companies willing to invest in the Czech Republic assurance of the quality of real estate solutions and competition between developers keeps the real estate market reasonably priced and stable. Interest from capital market investors is widening the possible approaches towards real estate, enabling more comprehensive transactions such as sale and leaseback transactions and hence bring corporates more flexibility in their future strategies. For companies that are also occupiers who are considering further development and expansion, it is essential that there is still capital available and that developers have further appetite for delivering new premises. The outlook needs to be slightly corrected this year from booming market expectations to more sustainable ongoing development. We have also seen more occupiers moving from direct ownership of their buildings towards more flexible structures based on leasing of the premises. This follows pan Eu- ropean trends and may confirm that the Czech market as being a more mature real estate market. Even though the Czech Republic may lose its labour cost advantage compared to more emerging countries, it will be compensated by companies’ in- terest in more skilled employees that are needed for more sophisticated operations, together with central location of the Czech Republic within Europe and continuously improving infrastructure. In the end, it is worth mentioning that the Czech Republic will remain a sought after destination by many new companies and that the real estate market still provides a large number of interesting solutions for satisfying any real estate needs as part of corporate strategies.

    • CZECH REPUBLICCZECH REPUBLIC Ústí Region Plzeň Region Vysočina Region The Czech Republic is a landlocked country. With its area it ranks 15th among the EU27, as for population it is the 12th and population density the 8th. From 1 January 2000 it is divided into 14 regions – higher territorial self-governing units, including the City of Prague as an independent region and 76 districts. Basic territorial self-governing units are municipalities (6 249). Some of them have extended scope of delegated power (205) and those execute state administration also for municipalities belonging to their administration district. The highest density of population is in Prague, in which 2 484 inhabitants live on 1 sq km. Twenty-one towns have more than 50 thousand and 112 towns over 10 thousand inhabitants. The Czech Republic is called “the heart of Europe”, because on its territory there is water parting of three seas – the North, Baltic and Black Sea and also boundary of two mountain systems of different geological age. The Czech Republic is an attractive country; besides its beauties of nature it has 12 sights of historical interest included on the UNESCO heritage list. Number of population from 1995 to 2002 was gradually decreasing due to negative natural increase. Number of children born in that period was constant- ly very low; the historical minimum of children (89 471) was born in 1999. In 2005, after 10 years, over 100 thousand children were born again thanks to strong population years of women in the age of their higher fertility. The age index will continue to worsen due to exceptionally numerous age groups from the 1940´s. Despite an increasing share of people aged 65+, among which the risk of death is growing, the intensity of mortality was gradually decreasing. It was, among others, thanks to improvement of medical care and the environment as well as new trends in life style, especially in alimentation. The most mar- kedly it is shown by a decreasing share of deaths due to circulatory system diseases, especially acute heart attacks. The trend of educatedness growth is long-term; lasting is mainly interest in secondary education with maturita examination (like GCSE examination) and university education. The number of university students increased from 118 000 in 1990/1991 to almost 370 000 in 2008/2009. Territorial differences within the republic as for the education structure are minimal; Prague shows more university and secondary school educated persons than the national average. In 2008, economic activity was lower in comparison to 1993 by 2.9 percentage points in total and reached 58.5%. The decrease was influenced by un- favourable demographic development, especially by the growing number of persons in the retirement age, gradual increasing of the age necessary to retire and prolonging of the length of education of young people. The number of the employed in the national economy was fluctuating year-on-year; it has been constantly increasing from 2005. After a sharp development of the business sector in the 1990´s, changes in the structure by status in employ- ment were less intensive. There was a substantial increase of the number of university-educated workers; slower increase was among employees with the maturita exam (like GCSE). In the secondary sector, the highest growth of employment was reported by manufacturing, especially manufacture of transport equipment and manufacture of electrical and optical equipment, in services it was in the area of real estates and other business activities. The highest unemployment rate is among persons with basic education or without education. As for regions, it is constantly the lowest in the City of Prague, the Central Bohemia Region, the South Bohemia Region, Plzeň and Vysočina Regions, while the highest unemployment is in the Ústí and Mo- ravia-Silesia Regions. As for districts, the highest unemployment rate is in Most, Karviná, Bruntál and Děčín. Long-term unemployment is a persisting problem, namely among persons, who are unemployed for 2 and more years. Since 1995 (with the exception of the year 1998), nominal and also real wages have been increasing. After 2000, year-on-year increments were between 5-9%; real increases were by more than 2%. The highest increase of real wage was recorded in 2003 (6.5%); in the following years the growth rate was about 4%. Nevertheless, differences were permanently deepening both among sectors as well as among regions and professions. Average wages of women for a long-term make up free quarters of the wages of men with a slight tendency to improvement. Total performance of the economy measured by growth rates of GDP was fluctuating. Important was the entry of the CR into the EU, the positives of which prevailed over the negatives. Long-term inflow of foreign capital and gradual putting of new capacities into operation was reflected especially in the development of the industry and construction; it brought a change of the branch structure of industry in the benefit of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and manufacture of transport equipment. The industrial growth was reflected also in the increase of outputs in transport. Labour productivity was gradually increasing, which solely contributed to increasing of the economic performance.

    • CITY OF ÚSTÍ NAD LABEMÚsti nad Labem is among the top ten cities in the Czech Republic. It has a population of around100,000 and is located close to the German Border.The history of the ninth largest city of the Czech Republic is connected particularly with industries.Its most extensive post-war development was intensively accelerated by massive coal mining.However, present day town planning processes are more comprehensive. Having gone throughmodernization, the traditional chemicals industry has conformed to the new requirements, thusbecoming a more significant development factor for the city.Today, Ústí nad Labem has the background for diverse entrepreneurial activities, and its environsoffer superb opportunities for tourism. Its unique location on business route junctions predetermi-nes the city to its specific position among European cities. Its exceptional transport connectionscontribute to its business growth as well as its cultural links.Ústí is located at the confluence of the River Labe and River Bílina. To the south, it neighbours theBohemian Uplands, and Krušné (Ore) Mountains to the north. The boundary of the Podkrušnohor-ská Basin is located west of the city. The city is situated in a deep valley (up to 400 m) of the RiverLabe and the surrounding slopes. Two rocks mark the border of the basin – the Mariánská Rock inthe north, Castle Střekov Rock in the south-east and Sedlo Hill in the east.The city boasts a unique strategic position. It is 98 km north-west of Prague. The border of the Federal Republic of Germany is 25 km from the city. The totalarea of the city is 94 km2.The city seats the Ústí Region authority. The Ústí nad Labem administrative district of the municipality with increased scope of activities is an industrial centreof the Ústí Region. It has an area of 404 km2, representing 7.6 % of the total area of the Ústí Region. With a density of 291 inhabitants/km2 it is nearly doublethe average density of the population in the region, featuring 80% of the population concentrated in the regional capital. THE USTI PENINSULA The City of Usti nad Labem is presenting the Usti Peninsula as part of its vision for its eastern wa- terfront. The City’s Strategic Development Department is fully prepared to talk to investors about residential, leisure and commercial opportunities that may attract Government and EU funding. Located only 3km from the City Centre, the Usti Peninsula is part of a regeneration area that takes in Krasne Brezno and Nestemice which are both run-down areas with the advantage of a waterfront location on the River Elbe. A masterplan is being drawn up by Prague-based archi- tects, Casua in association with Arcadis. “We are looking for developers who share our vision for our city. Our waterfront offers huge poten- tial for investors and we are ready to help by providing local knowledge of the economy and plan- ning regime and also by introducing our team who are experienced in EU and National funding.”LAKE MILADAThe City of Usti nad Labem has shaken off its industrial past and come right up to date withthe creation of a new leisure and tourism resort at Lake Milada, just outside the city.Lake Milada, which covers 250 hectares, is now an attractive centre for cycling and otheroutdoor activities. Once it was a coal mine, but all trace of its former use has now gone andit is now being made ready for development as a tourist centre. Being close to the D8/A17motorway means that it will be accessible from all areas of the Czech Republic and GermanCities such as Dresden, Freiberg and Berlin.The Lake, which began filling (naturally) in 2001 will be complete by 2011. The eventualwaterline has been set out and areas for development agreed.“Now is the time for developers and investors to talk to us. This next two years, while thelake takes its final shape, gives us an opportunity to work with our partners to create sitesand facilities that exactly meet their needs. We are looking to create a world-class resort foroutdoor sports and recreation.” Ústí nad Labem City Hall Department of strategic development Velká Hradební 2336/8 401 00 Ústí nad Labem www.usti-nad-labem.cz Tel.: (+420) 477 010 650 Fax: (+420) 477 010 682 www.invest-usti.cz
