TRADE TALKS: GERMANY
Germany is Sweden’s most important trade partner. It is the world’s fourth largest industrialized country with 84 million residents. The average purchasing power per capita exceeds that of Sweden, and four German regions have a higher GDP than our country in total. It is hardly surprising that our most important trade partner is called Europe’s economic engine.
The economic ties between Sweden and Germany are strong, and more than 1 500 Swedish companies and subsidiaries are already on the German market. Germany is also the country that invests the most in Sweden, with over 1 000 subsidiaries in the Swedish market.
Swedish companies and products have an excellent reputation and are appreciated by German companies and consumers for their innovative power and quality. There is great demand for solutions in areas where Swedish companies are industry leaders, for example in digitization, 5G and fiber connectivity, and energy.
However, Germany is a country with strong and well-functioning value chains, and it can be a challenge for Swedish companies to find a place within these value chains, whereby it is important to be well prepared before entering the market and have the know how to navigate the regional differences within the German market.
During this webinar, leading experts within internationalization will talk about the German market and what Swedish companies should think about when looking in south.
Exporting and importing companies, or companies that are considering starting to work on an international market.
