According to a study published by the Boston Consulting Group US firms have said Germany is the best place in Europe to do business.
A study of 61 major US companies, including Microsoft, Nike and McDonalds, placed Germany as the best place in Europe for American investments. Some 86 percent of companies asked said US-German economic relations would improve, 14 percent anticipate they would remain unchanged. None of the businesses that took part in the survey said economic ties would worsen under President Obama. But because the ongoing economic crisis has impacted companies’ mood about 41 percent of firms said they would cut their German workforce in 2009.
