About Us

The Saarland is one of the 16 Federal States of Germany and is located on the border with France and Luxemburg. In 2002, Utah and the Saarland entered into an “Economic Cooperation Agreement” to serve each other’s economic interests in their respective markets. In fulfillment of that Agreement, the gwSAAR (the Saarland’s Economic Development Offices) are represented in Utah with a local office, work closely with the Utah Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED), currently serve as the “Trade Representative for Utah in the European Union and maintain active memberships in various Utah industry Associations. Our mission is to promote trade and economic relationships between Utah and Europe and to attract “Foreign Direct Investment” into Utah.
