This investor conference is part of a roadshow with another event taking place in Shenzhen on Thursday, May 16.

China is emerging as a major player in the global digital market with an impressive number of success stories in new business areas. As Europe’s largest information and communication technology (ICT) market, Germany has long been a major force in the field; boasting a unique landscape of smart industries and a new generation of start-ups in a diverse range of sectors. International companies are increasingly deciding to locate to Germany in order to benefit from the country’s excellent workforce, state-of-the-art infrastructure, moderate wage cost developments, high productivity rates, and competitive tax system.

The event will provide an overview of current developments of the country’s thriving ICT industry – especially in the eastern federal states – and will include general market data, mayor players, and relevant governmental strategies and programs. We will also outline major investment opportunities for Chinese companies – specifically in the fields of environmental, medical and financial technologies, smart cities, logistics, and the Internet of Things – and the free investor information services provided by GTAI.

The event will be held in German and Chinese with simultaneous interpretation.
