Andreas Gerber and Kirk Atkinson from Bremen Economic Development GmbH introduced Bremen’s business goals in an effort to forge partnerships Gwinnett County companies.

Georgia and Gwinnett were targeted because of their “industry diversity and appealing business environment,” said Mr. Gerber, international affairs director for Bremen’s investment recruitment arm.

Georgia and the region are a good match for Bremen, Kristian Wolf, president of the German-American Chamber of Commerce of the Southern U.S., said in a Gwinnett chamber news release.

“Many industries that are doing business here in the Southeast are doing what Bremen is known for: aviation, logistics and offshore wind,” Mr. Wolf said. “This will drive opportunity for companies on both sides of the Atlantic to cooperate and will create business and investment opportunities.”

In addition to the Bremen delegation, the Gwinnett chamber hosted groups from China and France within a two-day span.
