Germany Trade & Invest outlined the advantages of Germany as a business location with particular focus on the next-generation digital economy and microelectronics sectors.


Germany is Europe’s microelectronics hub; producing 50 percent of all chips made on European shores. To enable the digital economy of the future, significant research is being undertaken in sectors including energy-efficient and printable electronics. The new “Digital Germany” federal initiative will ensure broadband access of 50 Mbit/sec upwards nationwide. Having already begun to roll out 4G LTE in 2010, some 34 million people are forecast to be LTE customers by 2015, providing a further boost to the country’s already vibrant internet industry.
