Creating a dynamic and prosperous Region Leipzig
The business development agency Region Leipzig GmbH has been active since September 2013 as a company operated by the city of Leipzig, Leipzig Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and the district authorities of North Saxony and Leipzig. Its central aims lie in the initiation and development of commercial direct investment which creates jobs, as well as in attracting skilled workers to the Leipzig region, from both Germany and abroad.
