It is an official language of Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Luxembourg, and Liechtenstein. In addition to that, around 20 million people are learning German as a foreign language worldwide. Germany is one of the largest exporters globally, and the largest national economy in Europe. Two-thirds of the world's leading international trade fairs take place in Germany.
