Date: 29 October 2007 (Monday)
 

The School of Modern Languages and Cultures is proud to present a talk by:

Mr. W. Ehmann, Executive Director, German Industry and Commerce, German Chamber of Commerce, Hong Kong

A WINNING STRATEGY – GERMAN COMPANIES IN HONG KONG: Present and Future Outlooks

This talk is part of the German October 2007 at HKU series of events.

Date: October 29, 2007 (Monday)
Time: 4:00pm – 6:00pm
Venue: M103, Main Building, HKU

German companies have been active in Asia for over 100 years. While it was common in the early days for these companies to be represented by intermediaries, typically a trading house, only in recent history have a larger number of these companies started to establish their own presence, first in Hong Kong and later on the Chinese mainland. Germany, as a major trading partner of many Asian countries, including Hong Kong and China, has an important role to play in the development and future shape of Sino-European (economic) relations, relations that over time are growing increasingly complex and multifaceted.


About the GIC:
Established in Hong Kong in 1986, German Industry and Commerce Ltd. (GIC) is member of the worldwide Delegations of German Industry and Commerce (AHK) network of over 120 offices in over 80 countries and territories. A non-government, non political private registered association with the public mandate of the Federal Republic of Germany to represent the overall economic interests of Germany, GIC focuses on the promotion of bilateral trade and investment between Germany and its mandate areas.

In addition to its many other activities, the GIC also provides the management, dedicated staff and other resources to the German Chamber of Commerce, Hong Kong, which with about 450 members is one of the largest European national business groups in Hong Kong.

The talk will be conducted in English. It will last around one hour and will be followed by a Q&A session. All are welcome.
