Electromobility in CEE: can the region maintain its competitive edge?

Electric car sales reached over 10 million in 2022 globally. But this revolution of the transport sector is not only about EV sales but the whole value chain, including the charging infrastructure, the batteries and their components and the regulatory framework around it.
