Delegation Trip to China

Mr. Köchel, Managing Partner of IWG, took part in the China trip of Sigmar Gabriel, Vice Chancellor and Federal Minister of the Economy and Energy, with a BMWi-APA (Federal Ministry of the Economy and Asian-Pacific Committee) business delegation on April 22 and 23, 2014.
The discussions of Federal Minister Gabriel and the business delegation with Chairman Lienhard of the Asian-Pacific Committee as the front man with the Chinese government confirmed the Chinese interest in a further intensification of economic cooperation in the sectors of high tech, energy efficiency, and a structural change in the industrial sector. The central concern of the Asian Pacific Committee is the improvement of the business environment for German companies in China, in particular equal treatment of German establishments in China, access to public contracts, and the further improvement of patent protection.
