Around 100 Singaporean company executives with interest in the business location Germany joined Germany Trade & Invest for an exclusive lunch reception organized in cooperation with the Singaporean-German Chamber of Industry and Commerce at the Goodwood Park Hotel in Singapore on November 28th, 2013.
In the beginning, Peter Alltschekow (Managing Director Marketing and Communications, Director Eastern Germany, Germany Trade & Invest) outlined the excellent framework conditions Singaporean companies can find in Europe’s largest economy, Germany, and particularly in Eastern Germany. This presentation was followed by a closer look at Germany’s new federal state of Saxony, offered by Barbara Weigert (Project Manager – Inward Investment, Saxony Economic Development Corporation).
Singaporean success stories made in Germany were presented by our two testimonial speakers from Singapore. One of Singapore’s largest companies, Singapore Airlines, is already well-established in Germany and the company’s former general manager in Germany, Casey Owyong (Regional Vice President Western Asia & Africa) kindly provided the other participants with insights into doing business in Germany. He was followed by Justin Lee (Business Development Director, Xmi Pte Ltd), whose company is currently entering the German market. Both speakers also highlighted Germany’s attractiveness for Singaporean investments.
Afterwards, the participants had the opportunity to network with the other company representatives from Singapore but also with representatives of Germany Trade & Invest and the federal state of Saxony and learn more about Eastern Germany’s locational advantages and the services Germany Trade & Invest offers to assist foreign investors.
