Business spotlight

There are many international companies in and around the Cologne, Bonn, Düsseldorf region.  They are attracted to the state of North Rhine-Westphalia for many reasons, but probably the main one is because NRW is Germany's economic hub, nearly one in five Euros are earned in this region - more than in any other German state. If NRW were an independent country, it would rank 16th at the international level in terms of economic strength - ahead of countries such as the Netherlands and Switzerland.
