With the highest gross national product and one of the largest populations in the EU, Germany is the single most important market in Europe, and thus the number one location for investment by international companies.
The new BER airport has created a new European hub for air travel in Germany. The commercial area around the airport, the Airport Region Berlin Brandenburg, offers companies a wide range of location benefits.
The Airport Region Berlin Brandenburg has great connections in all possible directions. For example, trade with Asia in the renewable energy sector, the car industry and the semi-conductor manufacturing area are becoming increasingly important. In these industries, the Airport Region Berlin Brandenburg is a high-tech location and with the new BER airport, it offers numerous benefits for the Asian market, such as shorter flight times to Asia compared to Paris and London.
Berlin Brandenburg boasts a highly-effective, modern transport infrastructure. The integrated goods transport concept ensures that the flow of goods can be managed intelligently. The goods transport hubs in the region create the infrastructural basis for this.
The airport region also offers a smaller burden with respect to taxes and social security costs in comparison to similar regions in France, Italy, Poland and the Netherlands – as well as in comparison to other similar locations within Germany itself.
The region is home to the decision-making centers of major companies as well as a number of important medium-size companies. Here, you’ll find cooperation partners for research, development, production, sales and distribution.
The region‘s attractive financing opportunities mean that large-scale companies are eligible for subsidies of 30% – with small-scale companies even receiving up to 50%. One particular focus of this funding lies on the support of R&D projects.
Roughly 600 annual trade fairs and congresses with a total of more than 1.8 million visitors make Berlin Germany’s number one city for conferences.
