NRW has kept its position as favourite location for foreign investment in Germany in 2016 –  of which there were  413  last year.   NRW Invest (business development agency) reports that up to 8,600 jobs were created due to this investment.  That is almost 7% more than last year.

USA bring most of the new jobs to NRW.  China was leading again with the number of investment projects  in 2016,  followed by USA, Holland and Turkey.  The Düsseldorf region was especially popular in 2016.
