VIII. AmCham Business Barometer
Perspectives on Germany as a business location
8th AmCham Germany Business Barometer: Germany remains the most important location for US companies. US investors perceive that Germany handled the crisis in an exemplary manner and was able to significantly improve its attractiveness as a place to do business in 2010. This can be attributed to changes made to the economic framework in recent years. A large majority of U.S. companies saw renewed growth in revenues in 2010, and most have an optimistic outlook for 2011.
The AmCham Business Barometer surveys the satisfaction of US companies with Germany.
For the eighth year in a row, AmCham Germany and The Boston Consulting Group asked US investors for their opinions on Germany as a business location relative to other European countries.
This year's survey was conducted at the beginning of 2011 among 107 US companies with a total of approximately €120 billion in revenue and more than 320,000 direct jobs in Germany.
