As of January 1, 2012, Silke Miehlke, Director of Consulting Services for the German American Chamber of Commerce of the Southern U.S., Inc. (GACC South) has been named as the Official Representative for the state of Niedersachsen in the U.S. As part of her duties, she is often the first point of contact for all companies from Niedersachsen either already in the U.S, or looking to establish business here. She will also be accompanying delegations from the state, helping to schedule meetings with politicians requested by companies from Niedersachsen, and finding associations and trade shows relevant to the state’s business focuses such as renewable energies or automotive.
In addition, the state is lending additional financial support to established business representation and market entry services offered by the GACC South for companies coming to the U.S. from Niedersachsen. The aid is offered to small and medium-sized companies, with the requirement that they must employ less than 250 people and have a profit of less than fifty-million euro per year.
We are excited to lend continued support to Niedersachsen companies in the U.S. For more information on business representation services for German companies looking to enter the U.S. market, please visit GACCSouth.com.
