Immigration to Germany


Germany is a country in Central Europe and is a prominent member of the EU. It is considered one of the prime destinations for investors since it is one of Europe’s most technically advanced countries, with a highly developed infrastructure as well as well laid out transportation system. Its strategic location geographically allows investors easy access to the other EU countries. The local workforce is highly educated and most of them know how to speak English. Trading is one of the country’s main sources of income.

The government has also implemented policies that are very friendly to foreign investors, including opening to them all the benefits that are available to local investors. In addition, the taxation system is very liberal compared with other EU countries, making it a highly competitive destination for investors.
