International cooperative models of inter-industry and inter-firm synergy result in a remarkable potential which could contribute to advanced forms of East-West economic integration. The development of eco-industry figures is among the present priorities of international collaboration in manufacturing. After several years of building up mutual knowledge and credibility, German and Czech or Slovak firms have adopted an increasingly cooperative form of behavior. From industrial agreements to joint ventures, various forms of business cooperation are becoming widespread.

Not without problems: Cooperative business models are a most demanding part of East-West integration. The following case study aims to support the assertion that despite obstacles, business cooperation brings with it a number of unique advantages. International business alliances and partnerships can simultaneously facilitate the transfer of technologies and of management skills. The importance of well defined goals and personal initiative becomes evident.

One case study cannot offer more than a certain insight into an individual approach. However, it could encourage many who are about to enter into East-West cooperative agreement to take action.
