Foreign market intelligence of immigrants as source of international companies’ competitiveness

Currently, there are 15 million people with migration background living in Germany. In public controversy, they are usually seen as a problem or at least as a challenge for society, politics and economy. In other countries, such as the USA, Australia, UK or Canada, immigrants are often seen from a different perspective. Immigrants are often important economic factors in various regions.
