Welcome to the Cologne Chamber of Commerce and Industry

With its central location at the heart of Western Europe and its excellent transport links, the city of Cologne and its surrounding area provide ideal conditions for foreign nationals to work on a self-employed basis or for companies from abroad to set up dependent and independent branches.
With our international homepage we would like to provide comprehensive information for foreign investors: give an overview over the economic infrastructure of the Cologne Economic Region, illustrate some aspects of the German Foreign Nationals Law, and offer a compilation of useful links and contacts.
