Economy and Industry
Germany and France shown in the map of Europe continue to drive the European economy. The United Kingdom has opted to exit the European Union but will continue to remain an active participant in the European economy. Russia's economy is mainly driven by oil refining and defense manufacturing.
Switzerland continues to be the focal country for banking and investment, followed by the UK, Germany, and France. With Brexit looming, London’s status as a financial hub is now being challenged by Frankfurt and Paris. In the manufacturing sector, Germany, France, Italy, and Sweden lead the way in their respective areas of dominance. France, UK, Germany, and Russia remain dependent on a growing defense industry.
