Participants had the opportunity to discover the full advantages of investing in Eastern Germany. Texas entrepreneurs who have successfully invested in the region outlined their own project successes and flagged up strategies allowing other Texas businesses to benefit from the opportunities available in one of the most dynamic regions in Europe’s strongest economy.

Eastern Germany is the ideal business location for companies from Texas in order to be successful in the European markets.

Within Germany, investors will also find an ultra-modern infrastructure, a large pool of highly skilled employees, and competitive labor costs. The German government also provides business-friendly tax concessions for investments and a broad platform of financial assistance schemes. Eastern Germany’s ambition to stay at the cutting-edge of innovation makes it a first-choice business location for companies seeking to enter this developing industry.
