Dear Professional,

Germany’s second largest cargo airport, Leipzig/Halle Airport, is located in Eastern Germany. How the two cities of Leipzig and Halle – despite being separated by a state border – have successfully cooperated to establish the surrounding region as a striving logistic hub is just one of the topics featured in our latest newsletter edition. We hope you enjoy reading the newsletter.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or would like to receive more information about investing in Eastern Germany.

Kind regards

Peter Alltschekow
