A strong region on the road ahead
Located in the German capital city region of Berlin-Brandenburg, between the Western European business centres and the emerging markets in Eastern Europe, Eastern Brandenburg represents an ideal point of departure for your future activities in Europe and particularly advantageous conditions for investment projects. Hardly any other region in Germany has achieved such a dynamic structural development over the last few years. As an objective 1 funding area of the European Union, the financial support for investment projects is the highest in the entire EU.
Frankfurt (Oder) and Eisenhüttenstadt form the economic centre in East Brandenburg and as large and medium-sized centres, respectively, perform crucial hinterland functions for the entire region. The region’s immediate vicinity to Poland, the excellent transport links and the well-developed infrastructure are distinctive features of the Frankfurt (Oder)/Eisenhüttenstadt growth centre which have characterised the economic development, settlement of companies and the associated creation of jobs in the region. At the same time, the unique combination of living in green spaces, a diverse local cultural offering and the immediate proximity to Berlin with its new major airport Berlin-Brandenburg International (BER – "Willy Brandt") make the region a desirable place for living and leisure, for young and old alike.
In the city ranking by Initiative Neue Soziale Marktwirtschaft (INSM) in cooperation with Wirtschaftswoche magazine, the Frankfurt (Oder) / Eisenhüttenstadt region is amongst the top-ranked group of "Germany’s most dynamic regions."
