Terrain’s managing director Andreas Dressler was invited to address the leadership of Germany’s state economic development agencies at their biannual meeting held in Stuttgart on April 15, 2011. These agencies are responsible for promoting economic growth and encouraging investment in Germany’s 16 federal states (http://www.gtai.com/homepage/regions-in-germany/federal-states/). Their leadership meets regularly to share experience and collaborate on areas of common interest.

Andreas Dressler provided an overview of global FDI trends and drivers as well as the types of foreign investors that are most likely to consider Germany in light of these trends. This overview was based largely on Terrain’s recent location advisory projects and our regular discussions with companies from across all industries regarding their international investment plans. The presentation also included an update on the activities of investment promotion agencies in other European countries that compete with Germany for foreign investment. The presentation concluded with a discussion about the key success factors for the German states to continue successfully attracting foreign investment.
