German Embassy in Sofia Germany is one of the leading nations of the development of innovative and high quality automobiles. In order to maintain this position in the world market and further develop it, the German automotive industry has intensified their research in the field of electric mobility and electrified drives in the last years. Against the backdrop of ever-scarcer fossil fuels and the increasing need for mobility, the industry has recognized a high potential for growth and significant demand for innovation (e.g. German Hightech-Strategy).

The Federal Government has taken note with pleasure that the automotive industry has identified this trend early on. It is assisting them in the development of energy efficient and environmentally friendly technologies for the automotive construction by creating framework conditions that make these efforts be successful.

Bulgaria is becoming increasingly important for German companies in the production and development field of new technologies. The German Embassy Sofia is supporting this development actively, as a partner and mediator for German-Bulgarian projects and provides an important first source of information for both sides (Economy website of the German Embassy Sofia).

That is why the German Embassy in Sofia welcomes the initiative of the IACB to gather Key Players from the automotive world around one table and wishes the organizers the very best success!
