10 Reasons to Choose Germany

1. Leading Economy

2. Global Player

Germany once again retained its position as the world’s number one exporter in 2007. The country is the only G7 state which has increased its share of world trade in the last 10 years. And with EUR 439 billion inward investment in 2006, we also proved to be a money magnet and one of the top regions for foreign investors.

3. High Productivity

One of the highest productivity rates in the world and steadily decreasing unit labor costs are the decisive factors for our competitiveness. A series of social and market reforms have further contributed to Germany’s continued economic growth to make it one of Europe’s most cost-effective production locations.

4. Excellent Workforce

An investor friendly social-market economy promotes stable labor relations.

5. Innovative Power

Germany is Europe’s no. 1 location for research. German R&D is backed by EUR 5 billion in annual federal funds, helping to make Germany the world’s leader in innovation. It’s this commitment which also makes us Europe’s leading patent applicant and the leading global force in high-tech solutions.

Support ranges from cash incentives for the reimbursement of direct investment costs to incentives for labor and R&D.

8. Competitive Tax Conditions

The Federal Government’s raft of reforms to improve the general tax framework and keep indirect labor costs down are opening doors of opportunity to ever more investors.

Highly developed economic and political frameworks provide the necessary security for your business investment. Our judiciary and civil service institutions are professionally regulated to ensure consistently excellent service. Contractual agreements are secure and intellectual property is strictly protected.

Superior health and education provision, endless opportunities for sports and recreation in our beautiful landscape, and a vibrant cultural scene are just some of the reasons why more than seven million foreigners have made their homes in Germany.
