The German economy lives by exports. What German companies offer with the “Made in Germany” seal of approval is in demand worldwide, thus securing jobs and prosperity in Germany. According to the Federation of German Industries, “Above all, foreign trade is the engine that drives the economy.” LBBW ensures that this engine does not stutter. It provides export financing in the form of buyer credits and forfeiting, issues letters of credit and bank guarantees, handles payment transactions and implements foreign currency transactions.
