DCW | North Rhine-Westphalia

Measuring the gross domestic product (GDP) of North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW), it is the strongest economic region in Germany. Originally involved in the mining and steel industry, in recent years we have successfully made a structural change towards a service economy. Ten of the thirty DAX companies, are from diverse industries ranging from post to telecommunications, trade, energy, and chemistry, are based in NRW.

Companies from North Rhine-Westphalia have successfully for decades been active in China. Some examples of NRW’s direct investment in China include: ThyssenKrupp in Shanghai—a stainless steel mill, Bayer (Shanghai)—plastics production, and the metro Cash & Carry Stores. Soon to follow are the first MediaMarkt stores.

NRW is a preferred settlement location for Chinese companies in Europe. Thus, the telecommunications equipment suppliers Huawei and ZTE, as well as the manufacturing companies of Minmetals, Wuhan Iron, and Steel Corporation have opened offices in this most populous state. Leading Chinese banks such as ICBS and Bank of China have established branches in NRW.
