London meets Eastern Germany
IT investment opportunities in the new federal states
Berlin/London, (gtai) - Germany Trade and Invest (GTAI), the economic development agency of the Federal Republic of Germany, is hosting a conference and dinner for companies in the ICT sector on Wednesday, 25 June in London.
At the event, British entrepreneurs who have successfully invested in Germany will share their success stories and outline strategies that will enable other British businesses to benefit from the opportunities in the new federal states - one of the most dynamic regions in Europe’s strongest economy. Business experts, executives from both countries and representatives from Berlin, Brandenburg and Saxony-Anhalt will also present their industry knowledge.
Testimonials will be given by Bryony Cooper, Chief Executive Officer at TDispatch Ltd Berlin, which offers a web-based taxi booking and dispatch system, and Bryan Tookey, Chief Operating Officer at the social media analytics company Brandwatch.
Eastern Germany is the ideal business location for successful British investment. With its strategically favourable position in the heart of Europe, the region provides an exceptional advantage for serving the European market from a single site.
Eastern Germany’s proven commitment to leading-edge R&D is helping to create excellent investment opportunities for technology-based companies.
In Germany, investors will also find an ultra-modern infrastructure, a large pool of skilled employees and considerably lower labour costs than in other western European countries.
The German government also provides business-friendly tax concessions for investments and a broad array of financial assistance measures.
