About us

NUMOV – Your Partner for Success in the Near and Middle East

NUMOV is Germany’s oldest and largest organisation promoting economic relations between Germany and the countries of the Near and Middle East. Dynamism and variety are defining attributes of the region – as well as exceptional enterprise prospects. Since its foundation more than 84 years ago, NUMOV has assisted its members in establishing and developing business relationships, consistently prioritising our guiding principle of bilateral cooperation.

NUMOV works in close tandem with embassies from the region, German embassies overseas, various federal ministries, and the Federal Foreign Office. Representatives from many such institutions are regularly on hand to offer their professional expertise to NUMOV members at the frequent conferences, forums and seminars we organise. The centrally located and well-equipped NUMOV Conference Centre in the government district of Berlin is the ideal venue for these popular, high-level events.

As a NUMOV member, you will be able to profit from our comprehensive service package. We offer updates on the latest regional economic developments on an almost daily basis, in addition to which you will receive economic handbooks and other specialist publications on individual countries, compiled in collaboration with the NUMOV-affiliated German Orient-Institute, which also produces expert market analyses for our members.

Additionally, our delegation trips to the Near and Middle East as well as the delegations that visit us in Germany enable our members to build pioneering and effective partnerships with enterprises from the region. The special offer of a postal address on our premises in Berlin’s government district also represents a prime opportunity from which members can benefit.

The former Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany, Gerhard Schröder, has been Honorary Chairman of the Board of NUMOV since 2005. It is courtesy of our good standing and many years of experience that we know how to best support your path to successful engagement in the Near and Middle East region.
