Berlin is home to over 160 Diplomatic Missions, international business clubs, chambers of commerce and associations, as well as to half a million fellow citizens from over 180 countries around the world. All of this makes Berlin the most cosmopolitan city in Germany and the ideal location for global operations. With its Berlin Business Offices in the People's Republic of China (Beijing) and the United States (New York City), Berlin is well positioned in two of the most important markets outside the EU.
