South Carolina Chapter

Welcome to the South Carolina Chapter of the German American Chamber of Commerce of the Southern United States

The state of South Carolina provides an excellent business platform for international organizations, and German businesses specifically, to prosper in both the United States and global markets. As a major trading partner with Germany, South Carolina as a whole continues to stand at the forefront of German-American relations, which is highlighted by the presence of over 100 German organizations within the state. South Carolina has five major interstates and a commercial airport within an hour of any location in the state, along with The Port of Charleston, the biggest port in the Southern United States. Why have German companies invested so heavily in the state? South Carolina is characterized by a sound business climate, a good labor supply, competitive operating costs and more.
