GERMANY
Our Featured Country

Many products “Made in Germany” are preferred in much of the world. And, with its 82 millions inhabitants, Germany is the biggest market in the European Community. But Germany is not an easy market to enter. Consumption has never been dynamic and never ranked among the economy’s stronger growth factors. And, although it has increased in the last 15 years, the purchasing power of the territories in the east of the country is still limited. Nevertheless, the government recently announced plans to stimulate household expenditures (to compensate for the forecast contraction of exports). Wages increased in 2008 and a reduction of taxation is being discussed. If consumption increases, new opportunities should increase.

Improve your business in Germany with Germany Trade and Invest. Learn about the business environment for trade or for investment. Find key information on industrial sectors on the German Business Portal and on the investment platform. Learn about each state on the trade platform and on the investment pages. Get a description of the German way of life and get advice about traveling in Germany, living in Germany or working there.

To find business contacts in German companies, go to the E-trade-center network and visit the German Business Portal, on which you will find B2B Market Places grouped by sector.

Investing in Germany can also be profitable. The skills of the workforce and the high potential of productivity and competitiveness are two of the main reasons to choose Germany. And, in addition to being an important trade partner within the European Union, Germany is also a global player, meaning that investment can offer good access to other international markets.

The German-American Chambers of Commerce in New York, Atlanta, Chicago, Detroit, Colorado and Philadelphia, as well as the German American Business Association of California and the German-American Business Council of Boston are FITA member associations. The American Chamber of Commerce in Germany is also an important business association. Look at their websites for even more information about doing business in Germany.
