Dear Sir or Madam,
During the last two years, German trade with Asia reached a new peak. Asia and Germany are interconnected economically in many ways, and there is a continuing mutual interest. Asia has a great investment potential for German and European companies: With high growth-rates, low inflation and little unemployment, Asian markets offer long-term opportunities.
It is therefore my sincere pleasure to invite you to the 4th German-Asian Business-Dialogue on June 5, 2019 in Berlin. In an exclusive location, the event connects German and Asian business representatives with each other and with decision makers from parliament, ministries, and the diplomatic corps. During keynote-speeches and interactive panels, the participants will discuss vital issues like digitalization, automatization, smart cities and innovative technologies. The event will be opened by a high-ranking German-Asian Minister’s Dialogue.
As an exhibitor you will have the chance to present the portfolio of your company to a high-ranking expert audience.
I look forward to an evening full of exciting conversations and a lively and inspiring exchange. Yours sincerely,
Member of the German Parliament
Ambassador of Australia in the
Federal Republic of Germany
