Business & Economy

Hamburg Container Terminal Enlarge image Hamburg Container Terminal (© dpa/pa) In the international arena German companies have an excellent reputation. They represent “Made in Germany”, known as a seal of quality the world over. They represent innovation, quality and cutting-edge technology. Yet the world’s third largest economy does not consist solely of global players, but also of numerous world market leaders who are actually small and medium-sized enterprises, the power-house of the German economy. They all benefit from the sound economic conditions in the “land of ideas”, not to mention the excellent qualifications of the workforce. Foreign investors also value this — and see it as a major point in Germany’s favour in the age of the global economy.

The economic section offers information about the economy in Pakistan, about Germany as a business location as well as initiatives of foreign trade promotion through the Federal Foreign Office Berlin.
