Dear Professional,

This year, Germany Trade & Invest (GTAI) will showcase Eastern Germany’s cutting-edge fields in a number of locations including Canada, China, Israel, USA, and Japan. Once again, we will focus on connecting Eastern German high-tech clusters with international partners.

Its more than 75 members include companies, research institutes and educational institutions from sectors like the timber and forestry industry, the chemical industry, the plastics industry, and plant engineering, A delegation of representatives from the cluster, the IMG Sachsen-Anhalt and GTAI will visit the regions of Toronto and Sarnia at the end of May.
