We have set up the department "Local Economy" for the active and targeted support of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the field of industry, trade, crafts and services.

Here we offer consultations, support and information discussions and company visits on matters such as funding advice /acquisition and company succession. The city of Emden has launched an attractive support programme, especially for the important small and medium-sized enterprises, in order to support investment projects. We organise and participate, supported by partners such as the Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the Chamber of Crafts and the Lower Saxony Bank (NBank), in network meetings and specialist events.

We are convinced that good solutions and approaches can be found in our offerings and existing networks in order to support the companies "on the spot" and together facilitate their further development.

We promote the exchange of information, knowledge and know-how "on the spot" – surely you will benefit from this.
