Recording the highest trade surplus in the world last year at US$285 billion, Germany has once again shown its economic leadership as Europe's manufacturing powerhouse. With more than US$1.5 trillion in exports ranging from vehicles, machinery and chemical goods to electronics, pharmaceuticals and other products, it is no surprise that Germany is China's biggest trading partner on the continent. Highlighting the strengths, expertise and offerings of the country's leading and niche Mittelstand companies, Discovery Reports provides German companies with a vehicle to strengthen bilateral trade and open client and partner acquisition opportunities through its Germany Business Report. Showcasing the country's competitive investment climate, the report headlines local businesses from a cross-section of industries and serves as a comprehensive guide to doing business with Europe's largest economy. "We have over 50 professionals globally working to produce high-quality and comprehensive business reports such as this one on Germany," says Angela Gaspar, managing partner of Discovery Reports, a leading media and campaign production company helping clients in more than 30 countries achieve strategic objectives by magnifying their scope. "We have produced more reports on Germany than on any other country, and our clients trust that our global reach will be an extension to theirs."
