Home -> Regions -> Bremen/Lower-Saxony

Bremen provides excellent transport connections to the European hinterland by rail, road, inland waterways and air, through the Container Terminal at Bremerhaven.
Sectors which are heavily promoted in the region include aeronautics and aerospace technology, physical distribution and logistics, electronics and customer communication centers.
Every year more than 20,000 students at the University in Bremen and 10,000 students at the polytechnics in Bremen and Bremerhaven provide the skilled workforce for the technology companies based in the region. There are also various scientific institutes which contribute to the global R&D activities of Bremen.

Lower Saxony is the second largest state in terms of area. It borders the Netherlands to the west and seven other states and the City of Hamburg to the east. Hannover is the state capital. International airports are located at Hannover, Bremen and Hamburg, providing access to the continent and worldwide destinations.
The economy in Lower Saxony is going through dramatic change as it moves from a still strong industrial base with Volkswagen being the industrial flagship, to a service sector economy. Within the service sector, particular growth has come from credit institutions, insurance companies, legal and management consultancy and tourism and culture operators. The region is home to TUI, Germany's largest tour operator and Norddeutsche Landesbank, the third largest credit institution in northern Germany.

"EY is a global organisation which for many years supports the BCCG. In times where less and less British pupils and students focus on learning German, it is furthermore my particular personal desire to support not only the BCCG (as a member of the regional NRW Committee), but also the BCCG Foundation as a member of the Board of Trustees in its efforts to foster a vivid exchange of German-British students. Despite a very close relationship between our countries, I believe that it is vital to continuously support younger generations in the multicultural exchange."

"Scottish Development International ist die Wirtschaftsförderungsagentur der schottischen Regierung."

"Die BCCG ist für uns ein wichtiger Partner, wenn es darum geht, schottische Firmen bei ihren Geschäftstätigkeiten in Deutschland zu unterstützen. Das mittlerweile legendäre Burns Supper in Frankfurt (von der BCCG organisiert) ist für uns ein alljährliches Highlight, um mit unseren Geschäftspartnern in Kontakt zu bleiben und die schottische Kultur und Lebensart zu zelebrieren."
