Germany Trade & Invest
Germany Trade & Invest (GTAI) is the economic development agency of the Federal Republic of Germany. The organisation informs and advises international companies setting up business in Germany. Furthermore, the GTAI supports German-based businesses seeking to expand in international markets with up-to-the-minute foreign trade information.
Germany Trade & Invest has a global network of employees who work closely with the German Chambers of Commerce (AHK). This cooperation aims to offer German exporters and potential foreign investors a central contact point for both country-specific market information and targeted consultancy services under the umbrella of the AHKs.
In Australia, GTAI is represented by Werner Kemper. He has been working for the organisation for more than 23 years. Over the last 15 years, his focus has been on the Asia-Pacific region.
Consolidated Economic Data
The series Wirtschaftsdaten kompakt (Consolidated Economic Data) is updated twice each year in May and November. Among others, there are number of indicators: residents; population density; currency; exchange rate; gross domestic product; BIP per resident; BIP development; inflation rate; average wage; unemployment; budget balance; foreign trade; significant imported and exported goods; important economic partners, foreign direct investment; national credit rating; monetary reserves; trade with the EU and Germany; and major German imported and exported goods.
The Australian economic miracle continues unabated. For 25 years, the economy of the fifth continent has been growing uninterrupted. Some analysts had predicted that GDP growth would end after the mining boom, but this has not been the case.
