Bavaria’s strong economic growth is also the result of an effective and successful economic policy, which aims to create the right conditions throughout Bavaria for greater investment, greater innovation and a greater ability to compete on the international stage.
Yet Bavaria does not rest on its laurels, because the digital transformation process in particular is creating huge challenges, but also opportunities for people, communities and entrepreneurs. In order to exploit these opportunities to the greatest possible extent, the state government has launched the digitalisation offensive BAYERN DIGITAL (External link) external Link: Bavarian Ministry of Economic Affairs, from which the Bavarian region also specifically benefits. BAYERN DIGITAL is a programme of investment to the tune of six billion euros until 2022, creating around 2,000 new jobs and making Bavaria the leading region for digitalisation in Germany and Europe. Besides expanding the digital infrastructure, the focus is on key future areas such as artificial intelligence, 3D printing, 5G mobile technology, autonomous driving, cybersecurity, micro-systems, e-health and assistance robotics.
