In an effort to move forward in this dreary economic climate the Cumming-Forsyth County Chamber of Commerce is attempting to encourage more European industries to come to Forsyth County.

The Chamber held an Economic Development meeting February 25, where Consul General Lutz Gorgens of the Consulate General of the Federal Republic of Germany was the keynote speaker.

He spoke about German business in the Southeast and in Forsyth County. “Over the last twenty years the Southeast is a primary region for German business,” he explained.

He gave five reasons as to why the Southeast and the Atlanta area in particular were especially inviting for German industries.

  • Infrastructure or the physical nature of the region
  • Closeness to other leading industries as well as the closeness to home in respects to Hartsfield airport
  • The quality of life and the quality of the people in the region
  • The business climate and the actual mild weather climate
  • The great German culture network

He then talked about the importance of the Trans Atlantic business. He stated some trade comparisons numbers with the German – US trade. “The German – US trade makes up 35% of all world trade, Germany has 13% of all foreign jobs created in the US, and over 10 million e-mails are sent across the Atlantic everyday,” he explained.

He ended with a little marketing for German industries. He said, “Germany has the largest economy in Europe and is very strong in ventures such as mechanical engineering, automobile manufacturing, and aerospace, to name a few.”

He will be helping Forsyth County attract German business.

Brian Dill of the Chamber explained that there are two sectors in which they think Forsyth County will be able to attract these foreign companies. The Healthcare Technology Industry and the Environmental Technology Industry are the two areas in which they will focus on promoting foreign business.

He believes this venture will bring more job opportunities and economic growth to this community. The Chamber will be acquiring a European company list that involves the above mentioned sectors and then will be calling them to begin talks about moving a section of their business to Forsyth County.

Forsyth County currently has 31 international companies. Story Courtousy of .
