As a location, the capital region offers businesses and investors ideal conditions, such as well-developed infrastructure, an ultramodern telecommunications structure, a large number of qualified potential employees, as well as an excellent science and research community. Berlin's economic structure is diverse and is shaped by industrial firms with long traditions, strong SMEs and a dynamic service sector, as well as innovative high-tech businesses.
An additional important advantage is the geographically central and strategically advantageous location of the capital, which opens up access the important economic regions of Western and Eastern Europe. The capital's new airport, BER, as well as Europe's largest and most modern rail interchange station ensure optimal connections.
