Products with the "Made in Germany" seal are held in great regard and are highly sought after. German capital goods and services contribute to Germany's standing around the world while strengthening economic growth and making Germany an attractive place to do business. Businesses are not only facing strong international competition, but must also comply with extensive national and international export control regulations to remain internationally successful. This is particularly true with the current geopolitical situation in many countries. Not just the EU sanction lists need to be observed. If you use US goods, the US sanction list also needs to be observed. And in this regard it's important to remember that the sanction lists are dynamic and constantly adapted to the political situation. As an example here it's worth noting Iran or Russia. Particularly Iran offers many new opportunities for German companies—as long as they know "who" they are doing business with.
