The world’s fourth-largest and Europe’s leading and most stable economy, Germany continues to number among the world’s favourite investment locations.
Studies such as the recent Ernst & Young European Attractiveness Survey, A.T. Kearney’s FDI Confidence Index and the UNCTAD World Investment Prospects Survey have all placed Germany in the world’s top five FDI locations and as the number one FDI location in Europe across numerous categories. Cutting-edge infrastructure, a sturdy industrial base, a highly skilled labour force and moderate costs are the most commonly cited reasons for doing business in Germany, and with good reason.
But there is also another Germany: one brimming over with niche-dominating small and medium-sized enterprises. It’s a place where international companies are helping shape the future, where innovative strength and research capacities are making the difference when it comes to choosing a European business location. ‘Made in Germany’ is now backed up by ‘Invented in Germany’. It is a place where good investment creates lasting value. Germany Trade & Invest is here to show you how and where to get that value.
