UKTI advises that if your product or service is successful in the UK, there’s a good chance you could be successful in Germany. Germany was one of the first European countries to emerge from the global economic crisis, and the economy is expected to grow by about 2% in the next 2 years.

Imports into the advanced manufacturing sector are crucial to the achievement of this growth, and export opportunities identified by UKTI in Germany include requirements for forgings and castings to electromechanical components. This market visit is an excellent opportunity for you to understand whether there is new business for your company, and how to enter this exciting market.
