Considerable emphasis is placed on the processing of raw materials in the countries. The local energy infrastructure is obsolete and needs to be modernized. For Czech companies, in addition to opportunities directly from the sector of exploration, mining and processing of minerals, there are also a number of opportunities in the ongoing modernization of existing coal-fired power plants, reconstruction and construction of small or medium-sized hydropower plants, construction of new boilers.
