In the more than 20 years since the fall of the Berlin Wall, both the German State and business have invested successfully in infrastructure. As a result, Eastern Germany is now one of the most attractive locations for foreign investors. This special region offers access to a modern logistics and communications network, an excellent R&D landscape, a highly-qualified and motivated workforce, comparatively lower costs, and some of the most attractive federal and state investment support packages available in Europe.
