Medium-sized and large enterprises are looking to mitigate risks in their China business. As a result, they are exploring alternative markets in Asia as part of a China +1 or an EU-Asia business strategy. At the same time, many Germany companies have a long history in serving customers in China and collaborating with Chinese business partners.

AHK Greater China, along with the strong AHK network in Asia, provides transnational and holistic support for the local economic interests of German companies and aims to help strengthen the resilience of supply chains of German companies in Asia. In our upcoming event series, our partner AHKs in the Philippines, Malaysia, and Vietnam will showcase their locations and provide information on exciting trends, developments, and business opportunities.

Vietnam: New Kid on the Global Manufacturing Block

Buyers and investors throw an increasingly keen eye onto this fast-growing economy.

The country has become a favorite for international enterprises to diversify their global manufacturing footprint. Vietnam is also growing into a high value add sourcing destination, moving into industrial supplies such as metal and plastic products as well as electronics.
