Financial Facts:

  • Exports to emerging markets are playing an increasingly important role

According to the U.S. State Department, exports traditionally have been a key element in German macroeconomic expansion, accounting for over half of the economic growth in recent years. Germany is a strong advocate of closer European economic integration, and its economic and commercial policies are increasingly determined within the European Union (EU). This export powerhouse is actively looking for opportunities to further its growth in international trade.
