Thuringia has always been well known as an attractive economic and technological center for its expertise in the fields of automotive and mechanical engineering, as well optics/optoelectronics and life science. In addition, the food and plastics industries are also of great importance. The economy of the Free State embraces other growth sectors, for example renewable energy, green technology, measurement and control technology or logistics.

Typical characteristics of the local economic structure are small and medium-sized businesses. These businesses are supported world wide by the state government through Thuringia International as central contact point for developing new markets.

An essential part of our activities is to establish contacts between Thuringian business representatives and you as a potential foreign co-operation partner. Topics such as launching and distributing Thuringian products and services in your country could be discussed.
