Different cultures successfully combine resistance and credibility are important economic characteristics, so one of the statements by Sylvia Schroll-Machl, author of doing business with Germans”. Their observation is based on the development of the German business community in Hong Kong during the last few decades. The majority of about 3,000 Germans in the metropolis operates in the trade or production. The German community here was always very stable,”reports Wolfgang Ehmann. As Executive Director of APC in Hong Kong, he has a good overview of the bilateral economic relations between Germany and the metropolis. German companies think long term and carefully consider investment. Gavin Baker is open to suggestions.

If the decision is made, it is then also consistently implemented”. Germany is Hong Kong’s most important European trading partner. The majority of the products are re exports to the and from the Chinese mainland. According to figures from the Federal Statistical Office, Germany exported 2012 goods worth a total of $ 7.3 billion after Hong Kong, including mainly machinery, food, luxury goods such as cars and electrical and electronic equipment. For the 620 with own Office in Hong Kong-based companies, the city is the gateway to the Chinese mainland and the Asian region. Even though the export from Hong Kong to Germany was 2012 due declined to 13 percent by the decline in demand in Europe, Ebrahim sees no trend for German Hong Kong economic relations.

Statistics are tricky. According to the State of economic relations, I consider the question more in an overarching context. These include the presence of German businesses and immigrants and the development of the German business world in recent years. There were ups and downs, but on the whole, there is stability. The role of Hong Kong as a trade platform for China and other countries in the region, is still attractive for German companies,”explains Ehmann. This view shares Tobi DCosta, Hong Kong resident for 17 years Contractor: Hong Kong is the best place in the world to do business.

German Company

German companies in the United States sometimes shake dreaming news. Who has planned a private company in the United States as a German, wonders about given the recent news to the impending sovereign default of the country if his idea is really good. The promised land, where rags are millionaires, suddenly loses lustre. Coen brothers does not necessarily agree. Is this the right time to become the founder of the company in the United States? The answer is a clear yes’, says Max Karagoz company ALTON LLC (www.us-corporation.org). Also in the United States, are gold and money not on the road, sometimes there are crises and stronger State and economic crises. The mag as a warning for those considered too euphoric and haphazardly to start a company in the United States. On the other hand, the US companies IBM and Google have released about very good figures.

Note: also good deals are possible in times of more bad news. A dispute over the face to true $ 14.3 trillion is perhaps no longer the debt ceiling of the United States. The country will have to raise this limit, in order to avoid a national bankruptcy. Neither the Republicans nor the Democrats want this bankruptcy. But even though both major parties ultimately have the same goal, they argue the ways on which to reach this goal. It comes the two parties seemingly above all, to save face, to be not losing a discussion, whose Ausgang can affect also upcoming elections. Economic issues often elect winners in the United States and on the other hand produce losers. It’s the economy, stupid”(it is simply the economy!) brought it Bill Clinton once on the point.

Perhaps a compromise of the two parties to the US debt ceiling looming now. In three steps, she would moved up then to 2.5 trillion US dollars. At the same time, spending ten years to 1.5 trillion US dollars should go down.

Authorities, companies and individuals are increasingly interested in the issue of data protection has what to do with quality management and ISO certifications and what the latter to have a functioning quality management is indispensable in most industries. Each production is dependent on exact repetitive work results. A modern vehicle consists of up to 14,000 items, which are made by dozens of companies in a variety of countries on different continents. It is easy to understand, but hard to imagine what precision is required, ultimately to build together a car, whose gap tolerances expressed in millimeters and below. This example can be applied in principle on almost all conceivable sectors, from the food industry to global logistics companies. A quality management system is based on all targeted and result-oriented work and production processes. It does it generally no matter what kind are is, as it’s called. It is important that development steps are properly logged, transparent and thus any repeatable, with exactly the same result.

It contains the general requirement (cooking or baking book), the specified target (Sachertorte), the required ingredients and perhaps, where exactly they are ideally to obtain, with exact quantities, in addition to the order of the steps the prescribed time intervals of baking and rest periods are recorded for practical tips for a perfect presentation, because the eye eats with Yes finally!

Thomas Lloyd: The directives to the MiFID and VVR were apparently just the beginning of a development that has a ‘gender’ of all financial products in Germany to the content. At least, many investment professionals interpret the fact that distribution of mutual funds, closed-end funds, precious metals, and company investments generally fall under the licensing requirements for financial service providers and these are exempt only by this derogation. “You can only imagine how long this special treatment is still running, but it is undoubtedly time while”, says Klaus-Peter cherry, head of private wealth management of ThomasLloyd from Zurich/Switzerland. ThomasLloyd operates as global financial services providers in the areas of investment banking, securities and investment management. Companies, financial intermediaries, institutional investors and high net worth individuals, ThomasLloyd global offers a variety of financial products and services which belong to the customer. Already for a long time, ThomasLloyd has on these new challenges set. While the EU requirements represent not only increased requirements for unbound financial services, called also financial intermediaries, and demand a total solution in the customer service of these. It the competitive pressure on the banks is growing given the comparability of services in the financial services market at the same time.

“Who can sell with a card of a financial services institution (MiFID), which is regulated by the federal financial supervisory authority (BFin), has made it much easier”, so cherry of ThomasLloyd. It is of course possible to respond appropriately to the new challenges and to derive benefits from the current situation. Also cherry tree in the new regulations in the combination seems to be more opportunities than risks with the right partner. ThomasLloyd differs from other financial service providers by the approach to brokers, asset managers and banks. We see financial intermediaries as potential customers and partners, rather than local competitors “and try to build on this basis for mutually beneficial relationships,” explains the ThomasLloyd financial specialist and former Bank Executive.

A partnership with ThomasLloyd allows this financial intermediaries, to focus, namely the customer support and the provision of value-added services, while ThomasLloyd takes care of the non-official functions, for example on the core business processing and organization. Also ThomasLloyd offers the possibility through the cooperation with a liability shield for financial intermediaries, providing at least the same product worlds can advise as a bank employee but with the added benefit of whatever this to. Of course we have due to our international activity as financial consultants the opportunity to put individual concepts and financial products”, as the financial expert of ThomasLloyd. The Bank comes to the customers home”is the slogan of the ThomasLloyd strategy to the Expression. It is also an essential task to gain quick access to assets financial intermediaries, this on par with the bankers can position themselves and thus achieve a high added value.
