Mecklenburg-Vorpommern has become an attractive and competitive investment location. The state is situated in the middle of the dynamic Baltic Sea region, connecting Central Europe with the Baltic States and Scandinavia. Major corporations have set up operations in the state.

In Mecklenburg-Vorpommern investors profit from fast approval processes, modern infrastructure and the availability of well-trained and motivated professionals. The A20 “Baltic Freeway” (Ostsee-Autobahn) has further strengthened Mecklenburg-Vorpommern as a business location, and the new A14 autobahn between Schwerin and Magdeburg will create a valuable link between the production, trade and commerce areas of the Northeast and the growth centres of the South. The state also boasts modern ports and an efficient railway network.

Efforts are being made to create additional jobs in the industrial and service sectors: for example, in the agriculture and food industries, the field of renewable energies, the healthcare sector, the maritime industry, the skilled trades and the automotive and aerospace industries. 

Digitisation represents a major opportunity for the state: Mecklenburg-Vorpommern is launching a 10-million-euro programme aimed at advancing the digitisation of the economy. The state would like to establish centres for digital start-ups and use a new funding programme to help existing companies prepare for the opportunities associated with digitisation.

The development of broadband infrastructure throughout the state is essential for achieving this goal. Mecklenburg-Vorpommern is also profiting from the federal support programme for broadband deployment.
