Mecklenburg-Vorpommern is the ideal location for companies in a wide
variety of sectors. The maritime sector is traditionally one of our main
industries, closely linked to our internationally strong mechanical and metal
construction industry - including the automotive and aviation industries.
Trade and commerce, comprising mostly of small and medium-sized, family-run
businesses, are also traditionally important. However, the food industry is
already responsible for a third of all sales in the region. It is the strongest
manufacturing sector here - and the trend is rising. Also trendsetting: our
life sciences, which particularly benefit here from the advantages of the
universities, research institutes and renowned centers for innovation competence (ZIK).
All of these industries stand to gain from the excellent transport
infrastructure in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern - above all traffic and
logistics. And they benefit from the expansion of fibre optics and 5G mobile
communications in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern - with all the opportunities
for Industry 4.0.
