A Success Story

A total industrial investment of 8.4 billion euros has been made in Saxony-Anhalt since 2002. Foreign companies have invested more in Saxony-Anhalt than in Saxony, Thuringia and Mecklenburg-Vorpommern combined; investors from 40 countries provide about 40,000 jobs in Saxony-Anhalt.

Important industrial settlements in all the regions have strengthened Saxony-Anhalt's economic potential. Along with the pulp plant opened in the summer of 2004, Italian investors have built a paper plant on the property of the Altmark Industrial Park in August 2006.

Saxony-Anhalt's attractiveness for investors has been increased by improvements in the general regulatory conditions. With three laws for simplifying investments, barriers for investors have been eliminated and bureaucratic issues reduced to a minimum.
