High direct investment from abroad despite COVID19

The FDI Reporting by GTAI provides an annual overview of greenfield investments in Germany. In 2020, the USA is once again the most important country of origin with 254 companies invested. In its entirety, however, Europe is the most important region of origin, and here above all Switzerland with 219 projects.

It is pleasing that with 320 companies from the IT sector, a particularly large number of greenfield investments were made in an industry of the future. Globally, the investment portfolio is very broadly based.

Overall, the reduction of 9% compared to 2019 is lower than expected.
