Saxony is particularly enthusiastic about the promotion of economic cooperation with our neighbours. Saxony works hard to strengthen the traditional ties with the neighbouring areas.

The economic links between Poland, the Czech Republic and Saxony have developed over centuries and continue to be carefully nourished. One of the most important objectives is to revive the once prosperous triangle of Saxony, Bohemia and Silesia. A variety of contact offices in all three countries have been established to facilitate communication and bring this goal closer.

Cross-border business meetings

The Wirtschaftsförderung Sachsen (Society for Saxon Business Development) organises regular central and east European events. Events of this kind took place, for example, during the enertec/terratec trade fair on the 28th January and the Z-Fair in Leipzig on 25th February 2009, with companies from Poland, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovakia. The cross-border meetings for entrepreneurs offer a good opportunity to make contacts and develop partnerships. 

Business forums

Since 1999, Czech-Saxon business forums have been held alternately in the Czech Republic and Saxony under the aegis of the Saxon Ministry for Economic Affairs and the Czech Ministry for Industry and Trade. The fields covered to date were machine tools, automobile suppliers, foundry technology, transport systems, local authority tasks, textile and packaging industries and recycling. The forums are used by the businesses to make and develop contacts.

The Saxon-Polish Business Forum has been held annually since 2004 under the aegis of the Saxon Ministry for Economic Affairs and the Polish Ministry for Economic Affairs. The forums alternate between Lower Silesia and Saxony. The forums examine concrete ways for the participating companies to cooperate. The fields covered to date were machine tools, environmental technology, automobile parts, renewable energy, the building trade and tourism. The sixth business forum was held in Lower Silesia in the autumn of 2009.
