In 2018, the German Chamber of Commerce in Shenyang will continue to organize regular special roundtable events for representatives of the automotive industry in Northeast China. Our Automotive Roundtable is designed to provide an exchange platform for managers and decision makers from local automotive suppliers, OEMs and related industries to share experiences, information and ideas. These events are regularly organized at the manufacturing facilities of a member company and usually include a brief introduction of the host company, a guided factory tour, a presentation by an external expert, a roundtable discussion and finally, a relaxed get-together.
The 2017 roundtable events all took place at local automotive companies such as BMW Brilliance Automotive, Draexlmaier Automotive Components, Arnold Fasteners and Boysen Exhaust Systems Shenyang. External experts were invited on every occasion to give lectures on various current topics such as opportunities and challenges of E-Mobility, new requirements in quality management, vocational training partnerships and stricter environmental law enforcement. Following positive feedback from the participants and with most attendees working for local automotive companies, the Automotive Roundtable further strengthened its reputation in 2017 as a successful exchange platform for the growing automotive industry in Shenyang.
