The Berlin-Brandenburg region is a major junction of European Transportation routes and an important business center in the expanding European Union. This region will act as a vital gateway between Eastern and Western Europe. An understanding of the specific opportunities that are available in this region will help facilitate the cultural and economic exchange between various markets in Europe.
