The economic internationalization offers a wide scope of business opportunities especially to small and medium-sized companies. By providing extensive information and organizing seminars and conferences, the CCI facilitates the penetration of foreign markets.
Global trade and international investments are among the most important prerequisites for growth, employment and prosperity in Germany. More than any other country of comparable size, Germany's companies are interconnected with the international division of labour. Foreign trade is the driving force behind Germany's economic relations abroad. Even in unfavourable world economic conditions, exports of goods and services have shown themselves to be a pillar of support for employment in Germany.
Globalisation, the introduction of the euro and trade liberalisation – these key concepts mean promising opportunities for German business and at the same time require careful planning. The CIC for the Palatinate offers assistance, especially to our small and medium-sized member companies preparing to enter foreign markets.
First port of call around the globe is the German Chamber Network (AHK) abroad. It consists of bi-national German Chambers, Delegations and Representations of German Industry and Commerce (AHKs). The AHKs are German industry–s most important partner abroad on account of their profound knowledge of the market, the fact that they are integrated into the local economy and their experience in dealing with foreign regulations and authorities. Please contact the AHK in your country / region for more information about how to invest or set up a business in Germany – contact adresses are available online: www.ahk.de
The CIC for the Palatinate offers a variety of information events, seminars and lectures regarding countries and subject areas.
