The German economy is losing momentum. The main factor is receding demand from abroad. However, the good news is that domestic consumption continues to grow steadily. This is exactly the right time for our newsletter to focus on one of the most promising and most important sectors in Germany: healthcare.

The German healthcare sector generated 387 billion euros in revenue last year with an annual growth rate of 3.1 percent. But with Germany being a federal state, it is important to know the different stakeholders. In addition, the German healthcare system is composed of a private and public part, known as the Bismarck model. In Business in Germany we introduce you to the system and explain the latest developments, like the Digital Care Act.

Our regional focus is on Düsseldorf. Did you know that Düsseldorf is also known as Little Tokyo? We explain to you why Japanese investors are drawn to more than just the excellent sushi.

Also in this edition of Business in Germany:

  • Regulatory changes  - how trade disputes affect businesses in Germany
  • German business etiquette  - a helping hand for Indian professionals
  • Robotics  - investment opportunities in German R&A technology 
  • Three questions for Andreas Wagner of Mitsubishi Electric Europe
