City of Duesseldorf, Office of Economic Development
Ranked as Germany`s number one city for foreign direct investment, Duesseldorf is an international business hub in the heart of Europe. Thanks to its high quality of life and moderate living costs, Duesseldorf has become a magnet for international companies. The city's central location on the European continent as well as its excellent transportation infrastructure and international airport, means that many European destinations are within easy reach. The city government is decidedly pro-business and actively promotes entrepreneurship. This combined with a safe living environment, tolerance, open-mindedness and the famous Rhineland hospitality, means that the Duesseldorf region is now the most popular destination for foreign direct investment in Germany.
