Germany’s economy is one of the most globally interconnected in the
world. This international integration would not be possible without the
German Chambers of Commerce Abroad, the AHKs. This network helps
companies secure a foothold in new markets and grow in more than
90 different countries. The AHK network plays a crucial role in the
success of German companies around the world.
Our new annual report makes the successful work of the AHK network
clearly visible. A significant factor in this success is the financial
support from the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy.
Following a decision of the German parliament, we provide more than
40 million euros of funding each year to the AHK network.
The AHKs have served as partners for German businesses for more
than 120 years. Together with the Association of German Chambers of
Commerce and Industry, we want to continue this success story and
further expand the AHK network. The plans include improving the AHK’s
consultation service and increasing the number of offices abroad. We
will be placing a particular focus on the markets of the future in Africa.
