Event Review: Developments in the German ICT Industry

Opportunities for Chinese Investors in Eastern Germany

Event: May 14, 2019 Location: Beijing, China

As part of the Germany Trade & Invest (GTAI) China Road Show 2019, an investor event to promote and market Eastern Germany as an investment location for Chinese business representatives from the ICT sector took place in Beijing on May 14, 2019. Parliamentary State Secretary at the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) Mr. Christian Hirte accompanied the GTAI roadshow, holding a keynote speech on the merits of Eastern Germany as an economic location and the special location advantages of the new federal states.

Germany Trade & Invest CEO Dr. Robert Hermann outlined the array of services provided by GTAI in his sub-sequent presentation, taking time to outline further the advantages of Eastern Germany as a location – the five federal states and Berlin – to the attendant audience of around 65 Chinese business representatives. The event also enjoyed the support of the German Embassy and the Investment Promotion Agency of the Ministry of Commerce, P.R. China (CIPA), with both Ambassador Dr. Clemens von Goetze and CIPA Director-General Mr. Dianxun LIU giving welcoming addresses.

Testimonial presentations detailing successful investments made by Chinese companies in Eastern Germany formed a key element in the event proceedings. Mr. Qiuping ZENG from IDENCOM Germany and Mr. Jinyuan YAN from Guangdong Biolight Meditech reported on their respective positive experiences in Eastern Germany.

As part of a panel discussion with representatives of the two Chinese testimonials and the economic development agencies of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and Saxony, additional regional advantages were discussed and substantiated by the on-hand expertise provided by GTAI ICT expert Mr. Henri Troillet. GTAI CEO Dr. Robert Hermann moderated the discussion forum.

As well as those economic development agencies already noted, representatives of Berlin, Saxony-Anhalt and Thuringia also participated in the road show.

Chinese company representatives in attendance made excellent use of the opportunity to network with the German experts and representatives from the respective economic development agencies before and after the event.
