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.

In order to attain these objectives, we have positioned ourselves as a modern, lean and powerful business development and relocation agency; under the brand "INVEST REGION LEIPZIG" we utilise a targeted, integrated location marketing mix of public relations, print and external advertising, direct marketing, road shows and social media to not only strengthen the profile of the economic region, but also provide effective support for business development and assistance with relocation. 

Attractive framework for your move to Region Leipzig

Leipzig is a region experiencing growth, with over one million residents in the area between Torgau, Eilenburg, Oschatz, Delitzsch, Grimma, Wurzen, Borna and Markkleeberg around the international trade fair city.

Leipzig recently achieved a high position in the international Financial Times location ranking in the area of  “Successful investment development strategy” owing to numerous medium-sized and large investments – amongst others from BMW, Porsche, DHL, Aerologic, Amazon, and from Dow, Siemens, Villeroy & Boch, Lafarge, Vattenfall and many others.

Alongside the automotive, logistics and IT/e-commerce sectors, the region's excellent conditions as a location for business have also attracted companies from the fields of biotechnology, life sciences, energy and environmental technology, the food industry, the media and creative industries, the chemical industry, and mechanical and plant engineering/capital goods.
