Join us on this journey as we showcase the vast business opportunities available in this region. For German companies looking to export, invest, or expand in the United States, the Southeastern region of the U.S. has become an attractive market.

However, setting up an office with employees can be a daunting task that requires a significant investment of time, money, and resources. That's where our Digital Tour comes in - it aims to strengthen relationships between stakeholders in the southeastern U.S. states and German companies.

Over the next 11 months, we will take you on a virtual journey to each state in our region. During a 45-minute webinar, you'll hear from the state or regional EDO about international business opportunities and local economic conditions. You will also get a firsthand account from a German company already successfully expanded to the United States, sharing their best practices and insights. This will give you an in-depth understanding of the local business opportunities and the unique advantages and focus industries of each state. Afterwards, you will have the opportunity to ask us and the business promoters individual questions.

Don't miss out on this inspiring opportunity to explore the Southeastern United States and discover the endless possibilities for your business!

We will announce the first dates at the beginning of January. Use our TICKET ALERT to be informed as soon as a new date is scheduled.

Known as the Magnolia State, Mississippi's economy is driven by multiple industries. 

Accounting for over 17% of GDP, manufacturing is a cornerstone of Mississippi's economy. The state's prime location and transportation access have attracted companies producing items ranging from automobiles to aerospace components. 

Home to over 200 hospitals and clinics, healthcare provides jobs for 15% of Mississippians. Major providers like UMMC and Baptist Memorial generate over $20 billion for the state annually. 

Mississippi's low costs and business incentives have drawn IT firms specializing in software, cybersecurity, and data analytics. Research institutions like MSU also bolster tech innovation. 

With its fertile soil and abundant crops like cotton, soybeans, and catfish, Mississippi thrives in agribusiness. The sector employs 29% of the workforce as a leading state exporter. 

Both traditional oil and gas producers as well as renewables thrive in Mississippi. The state has long been a hub for fossil fuel refinement and is expanding into solar, wind, and storage. 

With advantages across these core sectors, Mississippi provides a prime business environment with the infrastructure, natural resources, and hardworking talent that companies need to grow.
