Is China a rival or co-operative partner? Firms in Hamburg are taking a keen interest in China’s investment strategies and innovations offensive. Companies in Hamburg could certainly profit from these developments, an event held recently in the Chamber of Commerce has found. The upcoming “Hamburg Summit: China meets Europe” to be held in autumn will also highlight this subject. However, at present, all eyes are on Britain as the world waits with baited breath for the outcome of the Brexit referendum. A win by the “leave” bloc would also have a negative impact on commerce in Hamburg.

This news and other topics from Hamburg and its metropolitan region will be featured in this week’s edition of our newsletter. All topics mentioned therein are summaries of news presented in depth on the business platform Hamburg News. You can access the bilingual platform at
