Welcome to Germany!
In Germany, the "Land of Ideas", we place major emphasis on education, science, research and development. This makes Germany one of the most popular countries in which to study, as well as a site for state-of-the art research and patent development. With its high quality of life, good infrastructure and central location in Europe, Germany is one of the world's most attractive bases for business. Its beautiful urban and rural landscapes, combining age-old traditions and experimental modern culture, make a trip to Germany a unique experience. Germany has something for everyone, so why not pay us a visit?
Germany's minister of foreign affairs, Guido Westerwelle, will once again attend the annual Deutsche Welle Global Media Forum from 17 to 19 June. Its theme this year is "The Future of Growth - Economic Values and the Media".

European Film Festival
From 19 May to 4 June, the European Film Festival will take place at Star Cineplex in Bashundara City Mall in Dhaka. During the festival you can see 16 movies from ten European countries.
The German Embassy in Dhaka contributes the two movies: Krabat, which is the film adaptation of the famous children's book of the German author Ottfried Preußler, and Neukölln Unlimited, a film about three young Lebanese siblings living in Berlin and trying to safe their family from deportation through their musical and dancing talents.
“I am very concerned by the recent opinion polls on Europeans’ views about their future and the role played by the process of European integration. Many people in Europe are losing faith in the joint European project. Especially in countries where people have been hit hard by the effects of the crisis, people are losing confidence in a better future for themselves and their children.

Germany's international broadcaster Deutsche Welle (DW) has been in dialogue with the world for 60 years. Since its first day on air, it has transformed from a shortwave radio broadcaster to a multimedia organization.
"With its journalistic content in 30 languages, DW ensures Germany's multimedia presence in the world," said Erik Bettermann, Deutsche Welle's Director General. He added that competition for global audiences is becoming increasingly fierce due to an ever-growing amount of media products, especially in the field television.
