The event is also an opportunity to come together and to make valuable contacts.
 
At the outset, welcoming speeches were given by Yang Yi, Director General of the Foreign Economic Cooperation Center, Martine Püster, Counsellor at the German Embassy in Beijing, and Frederik Tipp, Head of International Projects for the host organisation, the DLG.
Subsequently, keynote speeches were presented by Kong Liang, Deputy Director General of the Department for Farm Mechanisation at the Chinese Ministry of Agriculture as well as Luca Mainardi, Chairman of VDMA’s Agricultural Machinery China Management Group.
In his presentation, Mainardi noted that the German agricultural machinery market had declined in 2015 due to low commodity prices and, consequently, lower farm incomes.
