Altstadt Leipzig

In Germany, the "Land of Ideas", we place major emphasis on education, science, research and development. This makes Germany one of the most popular countries in which to study, as well as a site for state-of-the art research and patent development. With its high quality of life, good infrastructure and central location in Europe, Germany is one of the world's most attractive bases for business. Its beautiful urban and rural landscapes, combining age-old traditions and experimental modern culture, make a trip to Germany a unique experience. Germany has something for everyone, so why not pay us a visit?

Germany and Ghana

Germany and Ghana have enjoyed friendly and wide-ranging political relations since Ghana gained independence. The frequency of official visits and meetings as well as the numerous German organisations which are active in Ghana give proof of the special quality of the relations between the two countries.
