The Arab world has become one of the most dynamic business regions in the world. Promising moves are being made to liberalise economies and to provide a basis for long-term and sustainable growth across the Arab world. German companies are welcome to participate in the economic growth in the Arab countries. They are appreciated for the reliability and quality of their products and services, as well as their cooperation with local companies. Building on the principles of mutual benefit and understanding, Arab countries and Germany can gain a great advantage from increased cooperation in technology and science, as well as wider economic and social development. Germany’s small and medium sized companies demonstrate great potential for export and investment. The Arab-German Chamber of Commerce and Industry has promoted business relations between Germany and the Arab world for 40 years. The main focal points of our chamber are information, communication and networking. Therefore we offer our members and the wider Arab and German business communities various services to facilitate the cooperation between German and Arab partners.
