Excellent prospects for engineers: Ifo Institute Dresden confirms high industry growth in East Germany

Increase in employment in the manufacturing sector, especially in Saxony and Thuringia

As the German regional broadcaster Mitteldeutscher Rundfunk (MDR) reported last Wednesday, industrial firms of all sizes have recorded an employment growth of 12% in these two federal states since 2007! Joachim Ragnitz from the Ifo Institute Dresden emphasized the high degree of industrialization and the long industrial tradition of Thuringia and Saxony, as well as the increasing innovativeness of the companies based there. By now, every 7th employee in Saxony again works in an industrial company!

And according to the head of the Employment Agency Dresden, Klaus-Peter Hansen, these companies also offer their employees very attractive working conditions in the areas of work-life balance, career prospects and income development.
