NRW is regarded as the ‘economic powerhouse of Europe’ [1] generating 20.8% of German GDP, putting it ahead of countries such as Sweden, Poland and Belgium.[2] With over 160 million people living in a 500km radius of the state capital Dusseldorf, NRW offers huge potential to UK companies looking to sell into the German market. NRW is Germany’s industrial and technology heartland with key sectors including advanced engineering, energy, life science, logistics, chemicals, automotive and ICT.

Join the Department for International Trade in the East of England and NRW.INVEST Germany for this seminar consisting of market presentations and a networking lunch. The session is suitable for both new and existing exporters, as well as companies wishing to establish a presence in Germany. After lunch there will be an opportunity to have 1-2-1 meetings with the speakers.

•    The do’s and don’ts of doing business in Germany
•    Establishing a presence in Germany, to include legal and accounting considerations

•    How to find staff
