Germany, where BDÜ operates, is the European Union's country with the largest population and one of the strongest economies of the Euro, with companies that have an excellent international reputation, with a rich history and with a vibrant cultural life – there are 300 theaters, 130 professional orchestras, 630 art museums, 350 daily newspapers and thousands of magazines, just to name a few numbers.
