    The important thing is which country invented print and finishing techniques, which country produces the highest quality products, which country has the very best people in the trade and which country supplies the very best print and finishing equipment.

    That country is Germany, always has been and always will be.

    As for the Southern Hemisphere, Melbourne Australia is the home of the printing industry as they have the most print companies, the best people and equipment and the most experience. These listings relating to economic basis mean nothing, its the knowledge, quality, equipment and experience that matters most, not which country has the most.

      For the western world, I would say Toronto, Canada, or Chicago, U.S.A, are the two top locales for the printing industry. Both are home to many large multinational printing corporations, and some of the largest commercial print businesses in North America.
