Silk Road 2019 Congress in Nuremberg

The Startup Factory is represented as an exhibitor with its own booth in the exhibition for the "Silk Road 2019" congress of the Nuremberg Trade Fair. Our Managing Director for Germany and Managing Partner Christian Haug will be at your service throughout the day for discussions on setting up companies in China and using Industry 4.0 technologies in our Smart Factory Kunshan.

The "Silk Road 2019 - Acting in New Markets" congress discusses geo-economic aspects of the Belt and Road Initiative in key notes and panel discussions. In in-depth workshops, experts present concrete projects to the participants and derive recommendations for action. Speakers at the congress include the Bavarian Minister of Economic Affairs Hubert Aiwanger, Prof. Markus Taube, and Martin-David Herrenknecht.

The Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) is a strategic initiative of the People's Republic of China to expand trade routes between China and the world and accelerating economic development in many regions, spending more than $ 1,000 billion on infrastructure projects. By now, 90 countries have joined BRI representing 70% of the world’s population, in order to participate in the planned investments and gain better access to increasingly globalized markets. For European companies too, there are great opportunities as subcontractors, as suppliers or as cooperation partners of Chinese companies in third markets, although practice shows that access to information and tenders for foreign companies is difficult. All the more important to deal with the topic at an early stage, make contacts and identify suitable partners.
