A region presents its strengths

In May 2003 the District Councils of the Altmark District of Salzwedel and the Rural Administrative District of Stendal, as well as the Chairmen of the Boards of Altmark West Savings Bank and the Stendal District Savings Bank awarded the Altmark Economic Prize for the first time. Since then, the competition has been providing impetus for the development of the Altmark economy. Entrepreneurs are thus offered a platform by means of which they can make their innovative products and services even better known to a wide public.
Every year the Economic Prize is awarded for a different theme. In addition to several other criteria, the candidates are measured according to their positioning with respect to the selected motto in each case. The aim of the competition is to recognise companies which have already made a good name for themselves in the economic life of Altmark, which have already existed successfully on the market for some years with interesting and innovative products or services, which invest successfully and create jobs and which display heart and commitment for the successful development of Altmark. The prize, which is worth several thousand euros, is awarded at the end of every year within a ceremonial context, alternating between Salzwedel and Stendal. In the 2014 competition, which was held under the slogan "The Altmark - economically strong", the firm KRAIBURG Relastec GmbH & Go.KG Salzwedel emerged as the winner.
The Altmark Economic Prize is on offer again in 2015. For all companies from Altmark, whether they work in the industrial sector, skilled crafts and trades, the retail trade, the hotel and restaurant sector, in agriculture or in the services sector, it is possible to participate in the competition. The tender documents will be published from the end of May under
