SGC Business Luncheon on "Economic Developments in Germany, Asia and the World- How Can German Industries Stay Competitive?"

With President of the Federation of German Industries (BDI), Mr Ulrich Grillo

About the Business Luncheon:

Mr Grillo will discuss recent economic developments in Germany, Asia and the rest of the world from the perspective of the German industry. To ensure future economic growth, key challenges have to be addressed: Germany and its European neighbours have to work together to stabilize the Eurozone.

Further, existing infrastructure networks need to be expanded in order to meet the demands of Industry 4.0. Looking at Asia, many important businesses and trading partners are located there, and the importance of this region to German industry is immense. To exploit trade potential, Europe should foster trade agreements with countries in the region.
