Today the Executive Board of the Thuringia International Business Development Association met with Mr. WANG Weidonq, Head of the Economic and Trade Department of the Chinese Embassy in Germany.

Roberto Tamaske emphasized the positive effects of good economic cooperation between China and Germany, from which the population in both countries can benefit.

Mr. Wang stressed that the German economy is still much more involved in China than China is in Germany. There are currently around 900 Chinese companies operating in Germany. This contrasts with around 5,200 German companies in China, which employ 1.1 million people. In total, German companies invested many times more in China last year (2018) than vice versa.

In order to intensify the joint cooperation, the Executive Board of the Thuringia International Business Development Association will travel to China for further talks in July at the invitation of Mr. WANG Weidong.
