Business Opportunities in Eastern Germany

As part of its activities to promote Eastern Germany as a business and investment location internationally, GTAI organized an investor event in Beijing in partnership with the AHK Beijing.

GTAI Head of Digital and Service Industries Marc Rohr held a lively and detailed presentation on the digital economy and artificial intelligence. The event, which was attended by over 70 Chinese business representatives, was officially opened by the German ambassador in Beijing, Clemens von Götze, and Director-General of the People’s Republic of China Investment Promotion Agency of the Ministry of Commerce, Mr. Liu Dianxun.

The keynote presentation of Eastern Germany as a business and innovation location given by GTAI Eastern Germany Director Silke Poppe was followed by two brief presentations held by representatives of the two participating new federal state economic development agencies (IMG Saxony-Anhalt and LEG Thuringia). The two agencies presented their respective states making use of case study examples. Location presentations held by the attendant GTAI experts and partners were supplemented by first person account presentations given by Chinese companies who have already successfully invested in Germany.

Multimedia was also prominent with screenings of the new "Germany Works" location marketing platform and GTAI artificial intelligence films. On conclusion of the event, guests were able to take advantage of the opportunity to network and engage in discussions with the different speakers.
