Dear Sir or Madam,
on April 18, 2018, the 3rd German-Asian Business Dialogue took place in the German Parliamentary Society in Berlin. More than 200 guests from business, politics and the diplomatic corps used the opportunity to get in touch with each other. We would like to thank you very much for your participation.
Asia and Germany are economically in many ways. There is a continuing mutual interest and bridges can be built between German and Asian know-how in several forward-looking topics through encouraging innovative technologies and an ever closer exchange.
By linking companies with each other and with politics, the German-Asian Business Dialogue promotes and ever closer cooperation between Germany and Asia.
