Entering the German Market: Business Opportunities in North Rhine-Westphalia webinar

THE German-British Chamber of Industry & Commerce and NRW.INVEST GmbH, the state-owned economic development agency of North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW), are holding a webinar on “Entering the German Market: Business Opportunities in North Rhine-Westphalia” on 10 June 2021.

The event is aimed at British companies planning to enter the German market and those which have already gained some experience and want to learn about how to adapt to post-Brexit challenges.

Since the Trade and Cooperation Agreement between the UK and the EU has led to some barriers to trade being introduced, establishing a presence in the EU can ensure that British companies can continue to benefit from some of the advantages of the Single Market.

The event will provide participants with all the necessary information on entering the German market, including information on legal and recruitment issues as well as on how to start a business in Germany. A particular focus will be the economic implications of current developments and the advantages of North Rhine-Westphalia as a business location.

Dr Ulrich Hoppe, Director General of the German-British Chamber of Industry & Commerce, added, “With Brexit-related trade barriers and associated costs expected to continue to have an impact on supply chains and sourcing decisions, having a base in the Single Market is particularly important for those British companies with a major client base in Europe. But it is also an essential strategy for others to ensure continued growth by making use of geographically close markets.”

The webinar will be held on 10 June 2021, from 2pm to 3.30pm, on Zoom.

Participation is free but places are limited. For further information and to register please visit
