The Czech market complies with EU market entry regulations. Local requirements are also compatible with EU regulations. In the 2021 Global Competitiveness Report, the World Economic Forum cited government regulation and ease of starting a business among the concerns, as well as tax policies and road infrastructure. Access to qualified labor has been a recent issue along with labor mobility, but the ramifications of Covid may change the employment landscape.
