In addition, it is worth noting that a large range of Czech sectors register some OPT, even if in marginal proportions. These are: the automotive industry, iron and steel, photography, printing, base metals and glassware. Hungary occupies an intermediate position, at least as far as T&C is concerned. e. 65 per cent of the total Czech OPT). Electrical machinery is in second position and, as in the case of the Czech Republic, it attracts very signi®cant amounts of OPT from the EU (slightly more than ECU 200 M).
Romania is a privileged destination of EU OPT in the T&C sector (around 25 per cent of all EU OPT resided in this sector in 1997), as well as in the footwear industry (36 per cent of total EU OPT). e. 34 M, and 200 M in the T&C industry).
