The ambassador also stressed the importance of research and extracurricular activities for students, which often opens the door to the world of labor and increases the probability of a successful future in which they can improve the society's development.

Moreover, Germany is the fourth largest economy in the world and the largest economy of Europe. It has a low unemployment rate, which means it is relatively easy to find a job after graduation.
