Location promotion in Rottenburg
||Promotion of economic development in the town is a shared responsibility; the
Lord Mayor and the
Deputy Mayor for Economics are responsible for large commercial property and real estate issues. In the
Building Department, criteria ancillary to construction are determined. The Office of Urban Planning is also incorporated here.
In 1999 the
Business Development and Tourist Corporation (WTG) was founded in order to provide a business-friendly environment for the commercial and service sector, and to intensify the complex links between business and administration. The main focus of the organisation is the further development and support of the commercial, service and trade sectors and the promotion of Rottenburg as an attractive location.
|The WTG organizes regular events in and around Rottenburg and concentrates on setting up networks within the town. Working in close contact with the regional economic development agencies, joint events are held combining the tourism, commercial and trade sectors. Such close cooperation amongst the parties involved in Rottenburg’s economic development ensures a rapid and flexible response to those wishing to invest in and/or settle in Rottenburg.
When more complex situations occur, cross-functional working-parties are formed in order to find business-friendly solutions at short notice and with the approval of the authorities and other bodies.
trade and commerce association, HGV 1856 e.V. Rottenburg am Neckar, has also taken up the networking cause. This association has existed for over 150 years and could boast 150 members at the time of the 2006 jubilee.
||Cooperation between business enterprises and welfare institutions is becoming increasingly important; in the specially created department
Bürgerschaftliches Engagement (Civic Involvement), the “Unterbürgern” project, which organises activities such as
Companies Set a Precedent, Work Experience, or Clean Rottenburg Day, aims to increase awareness and knowledge of how companies and welfare institutions can work side by side to their mutual benefit. The “Unterbürgern” project is one of three pilot projects in Baden-Württemberg.
