The creativity, dynamism and efficiency of Germany's economy have led it into the premier league of leading industrialized nations. Attractiveness for foreign investors is crucial in this, for their investments create or preserve jobs and help further develop technology. Therefore, Germany's system of external economic promotion is supported by Government and business alike.
The three main pillars are:

- The foreign missions (embassies and consulates general)

- German Office for Foreign Trade (Germany Trade & Invest)

- German Chambers of Commerce Abroad (not existing in Pakistan)
