Invest in Bavaria wins the "Friendship Award" from the Chinese Chamber of Commerce in Germany
Each year, Invest in Bavaria gives a "Newcomer Award" at the BayChi Summit to recognise excellent new Chinese businesses in Bavaria. Now, Invest in Bavaria has won an award itself!
At this year's annual Chinese Chamber of Commerce in Germany reception in Berlin in late November, Invest in Bavaria received the Friendship Award. The prize is awarded to German partners for a special commitment to promoting Chino-German business links.
It is issued by a selected jury that includes the chair and the board of the Chinese Chamber of Commerce in Germany (CHKD). All member companies of the CHKD in Germany are also entitled to vote. The CHKD is the first Germany-wide special interest group for Chinese businesses in Germany and the first Chinese chamber of commerce in Europe. In 2017, the CHKD also opened an office in Munich – its second after Berlin.
"It is great to see that we are being recognised and our work positively received in the Chinese community. Our close collaboration with the Chinese players in the field is leading to long-term success. We see this as a confirmation that our business development work is successful, and our events such as the Bavarian-Chinese Spring Festival and the BayChi Summit have become established meeting points for the relevant business partners." – Dr. Wolfgang Hübschle, Executive Director of Invest in Bavaria.
Together with the Bavarian representative offices in China, Invest in Bavaria helps Chinese companies to set up business in the region and is a point of contact for the Chinese community in Bavaria – for example with the Bavarian-Chinese Spring Festival and the BayChi Summit.
