From Martin Luther to Dow Chemicals

Cultural historical roots and economic ambitions bring the USA and Saxony-Anhalt together

Cultural historical roots and economic ambitions bring the USA and Saxony-Anhalt together

The USA, partner of this year’s ​Hannover Messe, are one of the most important partners for the economy of Saxony-Anhalt. Since 1991, American investors have invested more than 2 billion Euros (US$ 2.3 billion) and created around 7,000 jobs, making them the ​biggest foreign investor in the German federal state of Saxony-Anhalt. Within four years, the exports to the USA doubled and in 2015 they rose to 1.07 billion Euros (US$ 1.21 billion). This places the United States in third place among the most important export destinations of Saxony-Anhalt, after Poland and Great Britain. But there are more connections than just business; there are also common cultural and historical roots. This will be impressively proven by the Luther exhibitions in the USA in 2016 in the run-up to the anniversary of the Reformation in three North American cities. The specialist audience and interested general public can look forward to unique exhibits, which have mostly never been shown before outside Germany.
