CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Members of New Hampshire’s Division of Economic Development are taking part in what’s billed world’s largest trade show for industrial technology.

It’s called Hannover Messe and it’s being held in Germany from Monday through Friday.

For the first time in the trade show’s 69-year history, the United States is the featured country. President Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel will open this year’s event.

Hannover Messe typically hosts over 200,000 people from more than 70 countries, including global investors, buyers, distributors and government officials.

Carmen Lorentz, director of the division, says the New Hampshire reps are looking forward to meeting with global companies and talking to them about the state’s favorable business climate, educated workforce and possible partnerships in key industry sectors, such as aerospace, defense, and manufacturing.

“Taking part in this premier trade show puts New Hampshire in front of the world and gives us a platform to talk to international companies about the benefits of investing in or expanding to the Granite State,” said Jeffrey Rose, commissioner of the Department of Resources and Economic Development. “Direct foreign investment is a key driver of our state’s economy.”
