Cooperations and investments
Jiangsu province and the state of North Rhine-Westphalia forged a friendly partnership back in 1984. In order to extend the growing economic and technological cooperation, representative offices were established in 1996 in both Düsseldorf and Nanjing with the support of both governments.
The total volume of import and export trade between Jiangsu and Germany was worth € 22.36 billion in 2020. Of this figure, Jiangsu imported goods worth € 10.70 billion from Germany.
By the end of 2020, German companies had invested € 11 billion in 2,200 projects in Jiangsu. This accounted for almost 25% of German investment in the whole of China.
In return, companies from Jiangsu invested in more than 250 projects in Germany.
