From the beginning of the 20th century, Düsseldorf established itself as the “desk of the Ruhr area”. This was due to the concentration of administrations, company-related services, large banks and the establishment of the stock exchange. In addition, Düsseldorf’s central location in Germany’s most densely populated conurbation provides a solid base for a flourishing economy. The numerous Rhine harbours also play an important role in boosting commercial trade. Furthermore, the Düsseldorf Messe (Trade Fair) plays an important role in terms of global interdependence. As a trade fair city, Düsseldorf is home to various listed companies, such as the consumer goods manufacturer Henkel.
Within Germany, Düsseldorf is the location with the highest turnover for auditing, corporate and legal services. The city is also an essential banking and stock exchange centre.
