In July 2018 a high-level Bavarian business delegation, led by Bavarian State Minister of Economic Affairs, Energy and Technology, Mr. Franz Josef Pschierer visited Chengdu and Guangzhou.
Among the delegation members were General Managers and Chief Executives of the German Mittelstand and “Hidden Champions” from various industries like electronics, environmental technology, logistics and engineering.
For the second year running, Helis & Associates was entrusted with organizing B2B talks between German and Chinese companies to discuss new business opportunities and foster existing relationships. Additionally, company visits in Chengdu and Guangzhou helped to share know-how on a technical-level.
With H&A's help, many Chinese businesses were invited to the event. The feedback of the Chinese and German companies was very good throughout. Both sides strengthened newly made relationships and continued talks about future business.
During the B2B-talks, Bavarian State Minister Pschierer also had political talks with representatives of Sichuan and Guangdong province. In Chengdu, a new Bavarian representative office was opened by Mr Pschierer and German Consul General Mr. Klaus Schmidt.
